Our strategic plan sets out how we will go about meeting the health needs of the people in our district. It makes sure we are
  • heading in the right direction,
  • focusing our resources so we make a difference,
  • have a common purpose and common values to collectively work to,
  • and can make the most of future opportunities.

After going through a strategy “refresh” process in the first part of 2016, we have agreed on a new vision and a mission statement:

Vision: Healthy People. Excellent Care

Mission: Enable us all to manage our health and wellbeing. Provide excellent care through smarter, innovative delivery.

Our vision and mission means we will support people to stay fit and healthy in their communities. However, if people do need health and care services we treat them quickly, expertly and in a caring and fair way.

Waikato DHB whakatauki for VisionUnder this sit six key strategic imperatives:

  • Health equity for high need populations / Oranga
  • Safe, quality health services for all / Haumaru
  • People centred services / Manaaki
  • Effective and efficient care and services / Ratonga a iwi
  • A centre of excellence in learning, training, research and innovation / Pae taumata
  • Productive partnerships / Whanaketanga

Below these are a number of priorities to help us achieve these imperatives.
The strategy aligns with the New Zealand Health Strategy and is informed by feedback gathered on the strategy, international trends, Statistics NZ data, and analysis of the Waikato population.

We also have five core values with a theme of People at heart / Te iwi ngakaunui:

  1. Give and earn respect / Whakamana 
  2. Listen to me talk to me / Whakarongo
