Self directed care proposal
In order to maximise the health and wellbeing of Aucklanders, Auckland DHB is working towards a model of self-directed care. This has been described as “an alternative way of delivering services that seeks to empower participants by expanding their degree of choice and control” (Alakeson, 2010).
The voices of primary care providers are important in this change process. That’s why we are opening the floor to ask – what are your thoughts? How can we best move from where we are to where we want to be?

Proposed changes to Primary Care
In late 2009 the Ministry of Health called for expressions of interest to deliver ‘Better, Sooner, More Convenient Primary Care’. Three groups across the Auckland region have been established to do so – Alliance Health+, the Greater Auckland Integrated Health Network (GAIHN) and the National Hauora Coalition. More information can be found here.
What are Primary Health
The first PHOs were established in July 2002 and as of August 2011 there were four PHOs operating in the Auckland DHB area.
