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 on current locality networks as well as deas and concepts. The program has been designed to help you think broadly about how providers and communities can work together to shape approaches to meet their community’s needs.
