Review of Funding For DHB's

May 30, 2018

A wide-sweeping review of New Zealand's public health system will consider new funding arrangements and whether the District Health Board system "helps or hinders" the provision of healthcare.


Stuff reports that Health Minister David Clark has announced the review and the appointment of long-time Labour operative and former Helen Clark confidant, Helen Simpson, to spearhead it.


The terms of reference outline a mandate to look at "the current geographic distribution of services help or hinder the system as a whole", as well as "how financial resources applied to health funding could be altered to provide greater flexibility in allocation" transparency and "reduce inequities through targeting those in need".


The distribution of health services is carried out through the DHB system; 20 geographical regions, with boards that are responsible for delivering health care services at both the secondary and tertiary levels in that area.
