Three project managers will join Midland DHBs' shared services agency
HealthShare to support the region’s recently approved clinical work
The Minister of Health Tony Ryall this month approved Midland’s regional services plan
saying the five district health boards in the region had laid a solid
foundation from which substantial regional integration was expected.
Regional integration is a key priority for Mr Ryall.
“DHBs working collaboratively within regions is about ensuring services
are delivered in a clinically sustainable and financially viable way to
meet the needs of the region’s populations,” he told Midland lead chief
executive Craig Climo in a letter.
The three new project managers and the area they will work in are:
Belinda Macfie – Maternity and Rural Health
Jane Ireland – Radiology, Cardiology and Health of Older People
Leonie Pritchard – Elective Services
The project managers will make contact with the network and action group
chairs and other key stakeholders over the next few weeks to progress
the 2012-13 work programmes.
Philippa Edwards will continue to provide analytical support across all work streams.
Cathy Taylor, who led the regional services plan project, will continue
to facilitate all plan reporting, the steering group and the maternity,
rural health, stroke and renal networks and action groups until all of
the project managers are on board.
