Canterbury Clinical Network (CCN) 

Canterbury Clinical NetworkThe Canterbury Clinical Network (CCN) is a collective alliance of healthcare leaders, professionals and providers from across the Canterbury health system.  With the explicit inclusion of Canterbury DHB as a key partner, the CCN works to improve the delivery of health care in Canterbury and realise opportunities to transform and integrate our health system.

Aligned to the strategic direction of Canterbury DHB - the overarching purpose of the CCN is to provide people with access to the right care, in the right place at the right time – that is, quality care closer to people's own homes in a way that allows them to play an active role in managing their health. This includes the establishment of Integrated Family Health Centres and Community Hubs, the development of integrated patient pathways and the strengthening of clinical leadership as a fundamental driver of improved patient care.

Under the CCN, a significant array of local service level alliances and workstreams have been established to improve the quality of care, reduce the time people spend waiting and support the delivery of services closer to home.  Members of the Planning and Funding team play an integral role on the various service level alliances and workstreams, helping to facilitate service responses that align to the strategic direction and meet the DHB's accountabilities to the Ministry of Health.

South Island Alliance

The South Island DHB Alliance enables the region's five DHBs to work collaboratively to develop more innovative and efficient health services than could be achieved independently.

Our vision is a clinically and fiscally sustainable South Island health system – best for patients, best for system. The South Island Alliance is focused on keeping people well and providing equitable and timely access to safe, effective, high-quality services that are as close to home as possible.

By using our combined resources to jointly solve problems, we are better positioned to respond to changes in the technology and demographics that will have a significant impact on the health sector in the coming years. Together we will be able to achieve better health outcomes for the people of the South Island.
