DHB protocols to assist Oranga Tamariki

Matthew Whitehead made this Official Information request to Capital and Coast District Health Board

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Matthew Whitehead to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Matthew Whitehead

Dear Capital and Coast District Health Board,

I write to you to make an Official Information Act request regarding what protocols, if any, you have as to how DHB employees should respond to requests from Oranga Tamariki to uplift newborn babies.

If there are such protocols, could you please provide a copy, and also explain:

a) What their purposes are if not stated.

b) Who was involved in formulating those protocols, whether any expert advice was provided, and if so what the purpose of seeking such advice was, if not stated.

c) When these protocols were last reviewed, and are there any plans for a review based on the events that have recently been covered in the media regarding the Oranga Tamariki uplift incident in Hawkes Bay? (covered by Newsroom.co.nz, if reference is required)

I am resident in New Zealand and a citizen of New Zealand. Thanks for your time.

Yours faithfully,

Matthew Whitehead
