Vision, Mission and Values

Our vision is an integrated health system that keeps people healthy and well in their own homes by providing the right care and support, to the right person, at the right time and in the right place.


We also have a patient safety vision of 'zero harm'.

To achieve this vision we have:

  • Taken a whole-of-system approach - where everyone in the health system works together to do the right thing for the patient and the right thing for the system,

  • Aligned pathways of care between our hospitals and the community to improve information sharing across all providers of health care, and

  • Strengthened partnerships and alliances across the Canterbury Health System to improve the way services are delivered – particularly through the Canterbury Clinical Network, a visionary alliance of health care professionals from all across our health system

We are focused on creating a health system and community where:

  • People take greater responsibility for their own health,

  • People stay well in their own homes and communities, and

  • People receive timely and appropriate complex care.
