Auckland DHB COVID-19 home isolation performance
Dear Auckland District Health Board,
I would like to make a request relating to Auckland District Health Board’s performance in providing care to COVID-19 cases in community isolation.
The Ministry of Health guideline “Managing COVID-19 in the community” published on the Ministry website earlier this month states that it is one of the responsibilities of district health boards providing care for COVID-19 cases in community isolation to ensure “adequate daily reporting on risk and performance” is submitted to the Ministry of Health.
I request copies of all such daily reporting produced by Auckland District Health Board, dated since the beginning of this month.
From: Priscilla Philip (ADHB)
Auckland District Health Board
Re: Official Information Request – Auckland DHB COVID-19 home isolation performance
I am writing to acknowledge your official information request dated 22 November 2021.
We will endeavour to respond to your request as soon as possible and, in any event, no later than 20 December 2021. We will contact you if an extension is required.
“Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic response, Auckland DHB continues to experience significantly higher volumes of requests for information. Many key Auckland DHB and Auckland Regional Public Health Service staff are currently committed to tasks associated with the current COVID-19 outbreak. This will invariably impact on our ability to respond to certain OIA requests within normal timeframes.
If you have any questions about management of OIA during the COVID pandemic you may find it helpful to read the following from the Office of the Ombudsman https://smex12-5-en-ctp.trendmicro.com:4...
Please note that, like other DHBs across New Zealand, Auckland DHB has adopted a model of proactive disclosure which sees OIA responses publically available on our website approximately one month after they have been released. If you believe that there are any special reasons why proactive disclosure should not apply to our response to you, we will be happy to consider this.
