We are keen at this early stage in the Review to hear your thoughts on what system level changes could improve the performance of our health and disability system. Our focus is on changes that will have their full impact in 5 to 10 years time. 

This is the first of two opportunities to submit your feedback through this on-line process:

  • Phase 1 (December 2018 – May 2019)

    We are seeking your input to ensure the Panel has a good understanding of how the system works currently and to help us identify the most critical areas to focus our work on. We are interested in your views on the system level changes which would have the most impact on improving equity of outcomes in the future.

  • Phase 2 (August – October 2019)

    We will be seeking your feedback on the Interim Report which is due to be completed in July 2019.

This online process is one mechanism for you to provide advice to the Panel. Members of the panel will also continue to meet with representative bodies, DHBs, health care providers, consumer groups and others throughout the period of the review to ensure we understand the issues from all perspectives. In 2019, we will be sponsoring a range of workshops on issues to encourage people with different perspectives to work together to address the complexities of the issues.

Phase One Questions

We invite you to join us in looking out to the future – to 2030.  Think about the technological, societal and other impacts that are driving change in how we live our lives. Think about where we could have greatest impact in improving outcomes and experience of the system for all New Zealanders. Think about what matters most to you about the health and disability system and how things could be better. If you could change the way the system operates, what would your top priorities be?
