The Southern Strategic Health Plan

Our strategic plan is a road map showing what health services in Southern should look like over the next 10 years and how the health system is going to work collectively to get there. It is not just a plan for Southern District Heath Board, it is a plan for all Southern health and disability providers and the entire community.

It aims to bring together family doctors, community health and disability providers and hospital care, so that we work together around community health and disability needs.

The Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) indicates a series of actions, tasks and outputs which will enable the DHB to transform health care provision; it details a high level approach allowing us to empower our organisation and stakeholders to transform the ‘What’ and the ‘Why contained in the SSHP into the ‘How’ of action.
