Hospital visitors don’t need a COVID-19 Vaccine Pass, but do need to scan in. See our COVID-19 page for general COVID-19 advice, detailed hospital visiting guidelines and COVID-19 tests. See for info on vaccinations.

The Canterbury Health System

In line with the New Zealand Health Strategy, Canterbury DHB is committed to planning services as a whole-of-Canterbury health system. We work in partnership with other health service providers and with our communities to design and deliver service solutions to meet the changing needs of our population.

Through an alliance framework we share a joint vision for the health system with our clinically-led alliance partners, and work with them to improve health outcomes for our shared population. This includes the Canterbury Clinical Network (CCN) District Alliance, and the South Island Regional Alliance with our four partner South Island DHBs.
