Locality Planning | Clinical & Consumer Councils


Locality Planning

The health and support needs of our communities are changing and we are committed to moving with them.

Every day in our communities, people come to health services for help with a range of health issues. Many factors also impact our health and wellbeing including housing, jobs, transport and income. Those of us in rural communities will also have different health needs and priorities than those of us in urban areas.

Five territorial local authority districts are covered by MidCentral DHB (Horowhenua and Otaki are combined within MidCentral DHB) and each has their own newsletter:
Current and back issues are available for download. Further information and updates are available from the Locality Planning page.

More information about each Council is provided in the Information Booklets below.
