Auckland DHB and Waitemata DHB

Collaboration Maternity Plan 2015

Background

Since 2013, Women’s Health services in Auckland DHB (ADHB) and Waitemata DHB (WDHB) have been working collaboratively with a range of stakeholders to determine how best to deliver primary and secondary maternity services to our populations and create better frameworks for primary maternity providers using DHB services.

To inform future maternity system design, the Collaboration Steering Group has undertaken:

  • a review of the current models of care and configuration of services across primary and secondary services;
  • modelling of future demand for primary and secondary maternity volumes over the next 10 years; and
  • the development of a collaborative model of care that includes recommendations for location and configuration of future services.

Along with workshops, feedback from maternity consumers, stakeholders and DHB staff, this information has helped form a strategic direction for Auckland DHB and Waitemata DHB to provide sustainable maternity services into the future.

Collaboration Maternity Plan

The following Collaboration Maternity Plan has been developed to inform how Maternity Services is developed and shaped over the coming years, to ensure that we best meet the needs of our growing communities.
