Buller Integrated Family Health Centre

The Board of the West Coast DHB received "Building a Better Buller Health System: Buller Integrated Family Health Centre Development Plan and Indicative / Strategic Business Case" together with copies of the feedback received after the September public meeting in Westport at its meeting in Greymouth on Friday October 14.

The report was received in the "in committee" part of the meeting to allow Board members to freely discuss and debate the proposal.

The Board endorsed the Buller Integrated Family Health Centre model of care that has been developed for the proposal and agreed that a single site is the preferred option for the Buller.

The business case, recommendations made and feedback received will all be released to the public, before the end of October, subject to having areas of commercial sensitivity removed.

Board chair Dr Paul McCormack thanked staff for their work on the Buller Integrated Family Health Centre proposal to date and congratulated Board members for their commitment to improving the Buller health system.
