Disability Strategy and Action Plan

Southern DHB has been developing a strategy to make sure it is responsive to disabled people and their healthcare needs. Submissions close 14 July.

Acknowledging the importance of hearing from disabled people and the wider community, this Strategy and Action Plan has been developed through a process of consultation.

The Strategy and Action Plan in it’s draft form has been developed based on community feedback and contribution from people with diverse experience of the health and disability sectors both as consumers and providers. They have told us what they think is important. We have listened to the community and the Strategy tries to reflect what the community says. A big thank you to everyone who shared their experiences, knowledge and ideas.

We want to make sure we have fully reflected the views of the community and the draft Strategy  and Action Plan is now available for final consultation so we can evaluate and integrate feedback to produce a final Strategy document.

We are now at the stage where we would like your feedback on the draft Strategy to see whether we have captured what is right for you.
