(PDF, 4.7 MB)
This is our seventh regional plan. Over recent years we have seen demonstrable improvements in our health services. More patients are getting better access to care and care which is more consistent and better integrated across the region.
This report describes practices, projects and achievements that reflect CM Health’s commitment to equitable and quality care for the women and whaanau we serve. It also covers the recommendations of the National Maternity Monitoring Group and the Perinatal and Maternal Mortality Review Committee.
We are proud of our people who work in maternity services: hospital, community and lead maternity carer (LMC) based. We are proud of the work they do supporting the health of women living in the Counties Manukau district and their whaanau. Our teams work under challenging conditions – ageing facilities, workforce shortages and the increasing clinical complexity that arises from obesity and the many socioeconomic determinants that impact on our community.
2017 Position statement: Reducing harms from alcohol in our communities
(PDF, 727 KB)
Counties Manukau Health has published a position statement; Reducing harms from alcohol in our communities. A position statement is a brief, evidence-based, high level statement about a particular issue. Alcohol-related harm is recognised as an important and increasing health issue with widespread impacts across health, social, and economic sectors. Harms burden not only the individual consuming alcohol, but also their whaanau and the community. This statement provides a strong base for CM Health’s alcohol harm minimisation work by clearly stating the evidence-based policies and actions CM Health supports. It aligns with our obligation to improve, protect and promote the health and wellbeing of the population we serve.
