Management and staff who prepare the Board and Committee papers are all heavily engaged in the response planning and implementation of COVID19. To enable them to concentrate their efforts on this work, the Board has agreed to combine the Hospital Advisory Committee and Community & Public Health Advisory Committee meetings into a single meeting for the next 3-6 months. Public papers will be available one week prior to the meeting as normal. Board meetings will continue as usual.
The Board's governance role is to provide governance and to ensure that CMDHB fulfils its statutory functions in the use of public resources. The current Board governance structure includes three statutory committees and five non-statutory committees (including Advisory Groups) which assist the Board to meet it's responsibilities. The committees include minutes/agendas of Board members, clinicians and community representatives.
Whilst the Board maintains overall responsibility for the DHB's performance, operational and management matters are assigned to the Chief Executive.
In recognition of the strategic requirement for shared system wide accountability and integration across community and hospital care providers, CMDHB has an established district alliance with and related District Strategic Alliance Agreement with the five PHO partners operating within the Counties Manukau district.
This includes ProCare, National Hauora Coalition, Alliance Health Plus, Total Healthcare and East Health Trust.
