Peer Review

In October 2011, Southern DHB sought expressions of interest for an individual/organisation to undertake an expert peer review of our draft plan.  A peer reviewer was selected, and the peer review process is scheduled to be undertaken in November/December 2011.

The peer reviewers were required to present a written assessment of the draft plan including how well it aligned with best practice (clinical and planning) and delivered a sustainable model for current and future needs. In January 2012 we made adjustments identified as needed through the peer review process, and we reviewed the redrafted document with the Core Plannng Group at the end of January.
