Wellington’s Health Boards To Collaborate to Improve Services

Wellington’s Health Boards To Collaborate to Improve Services Recent reports have subjected that three different health boards serving Wellington will be reforming their services and collaborating with each. However, at the same time, they have denied the fact that they are merging with each other.

It has been reported that certain major alterations will be brought about in the health boards, but the integration majorly aims at improving the services and the same time would help chart out the health budget well.

Further, detailed reports have proposed that although Wairarapa and Hutt Valley district heath boards will be carrying out with the health services at their own levels, they will be managed under control of a single Chief Executive. Moreover, they will also be intimately assisting the Capital and Coast DHB.

Chair of Capital and Coast and Hutt Valley DHBs, Virginia Hope, said, "Its open up the communication channels. We need to do more in order to facilitate greater service collaboration across the three DHBs and that means having more common support services".

Ms Hope has concerned that the changes might bring about impact on the senior officials, but it won't have any effect on the front line staff members. It has been assured that none of the hospitals will be shut down.
