District Health Board Annual Planning Processes

District Health Board Annual Planning Processes Getting Underway

The Ministry of Health and other government agencies will soon start working with District Health Boards on their draft district annual plans.

Annual plans are the key public accountability document for DHBs that outline the expected performance of the organisation and what services they will offer for the coming year.

DHBs were due to submit their draft 2001/02 annual plans by July 31 this year, said Gordon Davies, Deputy Director General of Sector Funding and Purchasing.

Once a draft annual plan is received it will be reviewed by Ministry of Health officials.

Negotiations with each DHB are expected to take place in late August and early September, Mr Davies said.

"The Ministry of Health and District Health Boards will be working together closely over this time towards a mutually agreeable outcome."

The responsibility for approving the District Annual Plan and signing the Crown Funding Agreement rests with Minister of Health Annette King. It is expected the process will be completed in late September.

"Each finalised annual plan is a major document that lets a local community know what services they can expect from their District Health Board."
