The Northland Health Consumer Council was established in December 2014
The Northland Health Consumer Council (NHCC) works collaboratively with the Northland District Health Board (DHB) to develop effective partnerships and communication pathways between consumers and the DHB.
Through true partnership, NHCC provides a strong and viable voice for the community and consumers so that they can engage in health service planning and delivery. The Council seeks to enhance consumer experience and service integration across the sector, promote equity and ensure that services are organised around the needs of people.
Through effective processes and communications, the Council receives, considers and disseminates information from and to Northland DHB, consumer groups and communities.
The Council also has a quality improvement role and will advise and encourage best practice and innovation.
