CHOOSE... A Rewarding Career

Canterbury has a particularly close and long‐standing relationship with the West Coast DHB, and the two DHBs have established a formal arrangement to enable closer clinical collaboration and joint service provision. Formalising our partnership has enabled us to actively plan the assistance we provide, build a more appropriate workforce in both locations and improve patient safety, without having any detrimental affect on services provided to either of our populations.

As part of this arrangement, Canterbury and the West Coast share a joint Chief Executive and senior clinical and management expertise. A number of secondments and training opportunities have also been realised, which will better support a more experienced and sustainable workforce in both regions.

This arrangement also allows the Canterbury and West Coast DHBs to share ‘back office’ services and tools, develop aligned patient pathways, joint clinical work streams and common data sets ‐ reducing duplication and waste between the two DHBs, without increasing overall wage and salary costs.
