DHB re­sults hit tar­gets

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The re­lease of na­tional health tar­gets for the last quar­ter of 2011-2012 shows ‘‘very good re­sults’’, the Auck­land Dis­trict Health Board says.

In­terim chief ex­ec­u­tive Ngaire Buchanan says the health board met four of its six per­for­mance tar­gets and showed progress in the re­main­ing two.

The Auck­land Dis­trict Health Board achieved tar­gets re­lat­ing to shorter stays in emer­gency de­part­ments, im­proved ac­cess to elec­tive surgery, shorter waits for can­cer treat­ment and in­creased rates of im­mu­ni­sa­tion.
