Regional Service Plan Guidance 2019/20

Last updated May 2019

This guidelines document is for shared service agencies to use as appropriate to assist in the development of their 2018/19 regional service plans (RSPs).

The purpose of an RSP is to provide a mechanism for DHBs to document their regional collaboration efforts and align service and capacity planning in a deliberate way. The RSPs include national and local regional priorities, and outline how DHBs intend to plan, fund and implement these services at a regional or sub-regional level.

The RSP Guidelines are a reference document to enable regions to meet their minimum obligations when drafting their RSPs.
