Our 2023–2024 Business Plan sets out how we will continue to show leadership and innovation in the provision of health services, particularly to high-needs patients.
We have more than 228,000 patients registered with us and nearly 60 percent are high-needs and close to 50 percent are Māori or Pasifika.
Many of our patients have severe acute illness and/or chronic co-morbidities so just over half of our spending will be on projects that support people living with long-term conditions.
This includes a partnership with Brown Buttabean Motivation and Te Whatu Ora to help people battling with severe obesity related issues to kick start their fitness and wellness journey through the free From the Couch programme. The programme is open to enrolled patients and those not enrolled with us to help it reach as many people as possible.
We also support: an HPV self-testing research collaboration that targets Māori and Pasifika, maternity assistance for young Māori and Pasifika mums and a ground-breaking Wellness Support Team.
