National Entity Priorities

The Health Sector Forum (HSF) led the process to prioritise the initiatives of the national health entities for the 2014/15 (including Health Benefits Limited, National Health IT Board, Health Quality & Safety Commission, National Health Committee, PHARMAC, Health Workforce New Zealand and Health Promotion Agency).

A template was shared with DHB Chief Financial Officers and General Managers Planning and Funding on 20 February 2014. Both financial and non-financial information was required from DHBs to cover a period of four years (current and three out-years).
