Important: To keep everyone safe during Alert Level 2, visiting people in hospitals is restricted. Whaanau who visit should arrange visits in advance with the ward Charge Nurse. More details here.
We have entered a new era in healthcare where we re-orientate our health system around primary and community care. With a growing and ageing population and a rise in chronic and long-term conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, we have a challenge on our hands to integrate services and systems across the health spectrum and empower our healthcare users to keep themselves well and at home, and reduce unnecessary trips to the hospital.
With a focus on integrated care, a number of projects, campaigns and improvement initiatives taking place across Counties Manukau. Each project has a specific goal, but ALL have the needs of the patient and family/whaanau at its core.
