21 August 2015

Health providers, including the Midland Health Network, Primary Health Care Ltd (PHCL), Stratford Health Trust and Taranaki DHB met at the Stratford Health Centre last week to progress discussions around the integration of services at the Centre.

Neil Volzke, Stratford Health Trust Chairman said, “At the meeting it was agreed to establish a steering group which includes Alan Greenslade, a project lead from Midlands Health Network, and Mary Bird, a service improvement advisor from Taranaki DHB.”

“The objective of the project is to integrate and expand health services delivered from the Stratford Health Centre site for the Stratford community,” added Mr Volzke.

The group has identified key stakeholders in the project which includes service-users and the community. 

 “As well as working with clinical and non-clinical staff, Alan and Mary will work together with service-users in order to understand their experience of services and to identify potential improvements,” explained Mr Volzke.

“We hope to have a plan developed by the end of the year.  We will be putting out regular communications to keep all stakeholders and the community up to date,” he said.
