A health sucess story

The NZ Herald reports on the successful Counties Manukau District Health Board which has had a 37% increase in rates since 2004, and an 18% increase in total patient numbers – without an increase in facilities.

This shows that a combination of good governance, good management, good staff relations, and dedicated staff can make a real difference. It is not just about throwing money at the problem. Sure the DHB will have had funding increases which will have helped, but that is just part of the solution to improving health productivity.
