Details of efficiency gains made at CCDHB between 2011 to 2016

H Hutchinson made this Official Information request to Capital and Coast District Health Board

The request was successful.

From: H Hutchinson

Dear Capital and Coast District Health Board,

The Ministry of Health has defined an "efficiency gain" in the context of DHB spending as a situation "where a service continues to be delivered by a DHB at a lesser cost."
The direct link to this definition is made here.

The Ministry of Health also identified in this release that since 2011/2012 there has been over 124 million dollars in "efficiency gains" made to Capital and Coast DHB (CCDHB).
In terms of CCDHB for each financial year from 2011 to 2016:

1 - Please provide a list of all DHB funded services and/or contracted services who have been subject to “efficiency gains”' from 2011 to 2016.
2 - What is the monetary value to the “efficiency gains” subjected to each service listed in Question 1?
3 - Despite the definition of "efficiency gains" referring only to services 'continued to be delivered', what previously DHB funded services/contracted services have been stopped and not been refunded from one financial year to the next?
4 - Please provide any and all social impact assessments completed in the decision making process around the “efficiency gains” referred to in the previous Questions 1-3.

Yours faithfully,

H Hutchinson
