New Web Tool Makes Accessing Local Health Info Easier

Hon Tony Ryall
Minister of Health


13 December 2012 Media Statement
New Web Tool Makes Accessing Local Health Information Easier

Accessing health information in your region is now easier following the launch of new health web tool, My DHB, says Health Minister Tony Ryall.

“Public reporting on the performance of our health services is a key focus of this Government.

“New Zealanders can now access, in one place, health information specific to their district health board (DHB) region. This includes rest home audits, health funding and health target results.

My DHB also includes information and contact details for general practices, dentists, midwives and other professionals in each region.

“Most of this information has previously been available however it has been on a number of different websites and hasn’t always been that easy to find.

“This new web tool pulls all the information together in one place so it is much easier for the public to find to enable them to make more informed choices about their healthcare.”

Gordon Campbell: On The 1990s Retro Proposals For Our Health System

As we learned yesterday, the reviews propose that the democratically elected representation on DHBs should be reduced, such that community wishes will be able to be over-ridden by political appointees.
