The centralAlliance is a collaborative agreement between Whanganui and MidCentral District Health Boards to maximise their resources and knowledge. The Foundation Agreement was formalised in August 2009.
The Foundation Agreement
drives the two DHBs' efforts to develop clinically-led, collaborative health services and more effective and efficient shared support services with common objective being to achieve improved health outcomes for their DHB populations. The leadership of both DHBs meet regularly to drive and monitor progress. Commitment to the alliance is underpinned by the Foundation Agreement which sets out the centralAlliance objectives, while protecting each DHBs autonomy and decision-making.
