Northland Health Services Plan



The Northland Health Services Plan (NHSP) is a 5-year plan with a 20-year horizon. Taking a 'whole-of-system’ approach - our Triple Aim focus is on addressing population health, delivering a high quality patient experience and considering cost and productivity. 

We need to do things differently to address the impending tsunami of escalating demand for services. Specifically, we need to be dealing with health needs more effectively ‘upstream’, in the primary and community setting. This will require the whole of the health sector – the DHB, primary health care, Maori providers and other NGOs – to work together to redesign the system.

The system is under pressure from an ageing population and increasing prevalence of long term conditions. If we do nothing, in a few years time we will have an unsustainable health service. In four years, with no increases in the national health budget, the DHB will go from financial breakeven to a $30m deficit. In 15 years we will need 170 extra beds, about 70% of Whangarei Hospital’s current capacity, just to deal with the impacts of the ageing population and growth in diabetes.
