Position statements

As a District Health Board, we have prepared a set of position statements on key health issues. The intention is that these are brief, high level documents that will reflect Government policy where that has been laid out, and current best-evidenced practice, with an indication of how our services deliver in that area.

We are happy to make these available to the our community, the general public, and our DHB staff and providers.
