Audits of Rotovegas Youth Health

Martin Matenga made this Official Information request to Lakes District Health Board

Lakes District Health Board did not have the information requested.

From: Martin Matenga

Dear Lakes District Health Board,

I'm interested in the Maori responsiveness/quality management of the Youth Justice Centre, Rotorua - carried out by Rotorua Community Youth Centre Trust (Rotovegas Youth Health).

Under the Official Information Act I wish to request any information you can provide such as from audits and reports from the past 5 years (or since opening if insufficient) on their performance against the key measures relating to Maori (participation, planning, staff, clients, Treaty of Waitangi etc.). When have they been audited on these and could I have a copy of the most recent audit results and reporting.

In particular -
1. Under Standard Conditions of Contract - B4 Maori Health priority - What Maori Health policy is being implemented and how?
2. Is the Youth Justice Centre identified as a service that delivers to Maori health gain? If so, how are the services measured to ascertain benefits or other opportunities for Maori health gain?
3. Any information on how the plans are adequately resourced.

Under Provider Quality Specifications, what evidence is there they are meeting:
1. Requirements for Maori (C9&10)
2. Annually reviewed written Quality Plan, particularly C11.1(i) addressing Maori issues - a copy of the most recent plan for this is requested if available - is there any plan for the Youth Justice Centre or is it generic for the other services?
3. C12.3 Employment policies for Maori health worker development, recruitment and retention at the Youth Justice Centre.
4. C24.1 feedback from Maori by appropriate methods to improve responsiveness - a copy of any received information like requested surveys is requested for the Youth Justice Centre.

Any further information you hold which may help clarify these questions would be much appreciated. Electronic response via FYI is preferred.

Yours faithfully,

Martin Matenga
