Consultation on Service Model for National Perinatal Pathology Services

The Ministry has undertaken a review of the service delivery model for Perinatal Pathology Services, with a view to implementation of a sustainable national service. 

The below consultation document outlines the main recommendations of the Perinatal Pathology Working Group for establishment of a Service Model for National Perinatal Pathology Services.  The Ministry is seeking feedback on those recommendations and on the proposed Service Model from a range of stakeholders.

Your feedback is sought on the proposed Service Model for National Perinatal Pathology Services.  You have been asked to provide feedback as a stakeholder in the provision of perinatal pathology services in New Zealand.  Your feedback is important because it will help shape the final service model, ensuring it is appropriate and achievable.  We appreciate you taking the time to comment.

Consultation on Model of Care for Vascular Services

In 2015 a Project Advisory Group was convened by the Ministry of Health, with the support of DHB General Managers Planning & Funding and Chief Operating Officers .  The intent was to develop a nationwide tier two Vascular Services Service Specification that describes minimum requirements for a DHB intending to deliver vascular services, to ensure an integrated and safe service for patients.  As part of the development of the specification, it was necessary to describe a model of care for vascular services.  The model of care will guide the types and locations of services, ensuring patients access the right level of care in a seamless and timely manner. 

Your feedback is sought on the proposed Model of Care for Vascular Services.   You have been asked to provide feedback as a stakeholder in the provision of vascular services in New Zealand.  Your feedback is important because it will help shape the final model of care, ensuring it is appropriate and achievable.  We appreciate you taking the time to comment.
