Working together to deliver quality services to the people of Taranaki takes an important step forward with the signing of a partnership agreement between Tui Ora and the Taranaki District Health Board (TDHB).
The partnership, the first of its kind for Taranaki, reflects how the two organisations want to work together in a collaborative manner whilst still retaining their independence.
In late December 2020 Tui Ora Chief Executive Hayden Wano and TDHB Chief Executive Rosemary Clements signed the agreement.
Both partners acknowledge Whānau Ora which puts families in control of the services they need to achieve their aspirations. They will work towards making this a preferred model of delivery.
“Ensuring whānau and people have access to quality health care and social services is important to our region,” says Hayden. “We look forward to working alongside TDHB to continue to put families at the centre.”
Rosemary Clements says “this is an exciting step to actively support the needs of whānau and ensure the health system works for the people. This year we have witnessed great examples of support in action. This MoU is intended to ensure this continues”.
The partnership principals include items such as building a strong mana-enhancing working relationship, transparent communication and making equity a central focus.
