What We Do
The Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) has a strong commitment to the provision of high quality health care services. We strive to ensure our services are safe, integrated, focused on evidence based best practice and are responsive to consumer needs.
At the Canterbury DHB we believe that by continuously improving the dimensions of quality throughout the organisation we will enhance the health care services we provide, increase the job satisfaction of our staff and improve organisational effectiveness.
Our vision is that our health system provides exceptional quality by providing the right care and support, by the right person, at the right place, at the right time and in the right way. With this in mind we have set a patient safety vision of 'zero harm'.
