HBDHB’s annual plan given the green light

Hawke’s Bay District Health Board has received confirmation from the Minister of Health, Hon. Annette King, indicating support for the implementation of the DHB’s 2005/2006 District Annual Plan.

Says Chris Clarke, chief executive officer “We are very pleased to have approval to proceed with the programmes outlined in our plan.

“Hawke’s Bay is home to some of the best health providers in the country. The challenge for us over the next twelve months is to focus on a few high-need, high-result health improvement strategies across the whole of Hawke’s Bay. The DHB needs to provide leadership across the sector in order to show real health improvement and build a sustainable health service.”

The plan is available in electronic form on the Board’s website .
