Under the new model, geographic boundaries will be removed and general practices will be able to choose which PHO they belong to within the Waite- mata District. Waitemata DHB chairman, Dr Lester Levy, says there is a strong move toward a regional approach around primary care. The new PHO model supports greater regional collaboration, with DHBs and PHOs moving towards a more collective approach through the Govern- ment s Better, Sooner, More Convenient policy which is aimed at providing more healthcare services in the community. Now that the consultation has been completed, we are able to focus on our real interest which is shifting more services to primary care and creating a more seamless healthcare system , says Dr Levy. Patients will still be able to choose their GP, just as they can now, and the new PHO model means they can expect to see further improvements in the overall quality of primary healthcare they receive in the future. Waitemata DHB will now commence the process of selecting two district-wide PHOs with the aim to recommend the preferred providers at this month s Board meeting. In conjunction with the new PHO model, the Board is looking to announce the formation of a new Maori organisation and says it is pleased with the progress already made in this area.
