About the event
The purpose of the meeting is to engage and expand the thinking about primary health - in particular how Locality Networks can shape the delivery of health in New Zealand.
The Federation has embraced the concept of “locality networks” because they have the capacity to provide better and more equitable health services for New Zealanders. Local leadership, generating local solutions for local issues. There are many forms that a Locality network can take, providing they are providing primary health and community services. The Federation is planning to engage the sector and wants broad engagement to explore concepts promoted by PHOs, GPs, Kaupapa Māori services, Pharmacy, Non-Government Organisations, Disability Services, Oral Health, Midwifery, Allied Health Practitioners, Aged Care, Mental Health and Wellness and Sport.
We will have short presentations from some who are delivering primary health care through a locality network and others who are formulating ideas and concepts. The Federation will facilitate discussion to assist the sector to think broadly about how providers and communities can work together to shape approaches to meet their community’s needs. We want to hear from locality leadership groups about generating local solutions for local issues.
We welcome participants from every part of the primary health sector. This will include those who want to find out more about the potential of Locality Networks along with those who have concepts and ideas to present. Please contact us if you would like to contribute your ideas. Registration details will be forwarded next week.
