Our Health System alliances

Canterbury Clinical Network (CCN)

The Canterbury Clinical Network (CCN) is a group of healthcare leaders, professionals and providers from across the Canterbury health system. Its overarching purpose is to provide people with access to the right care, in the right place at the right time.

Manawhenua Ki Waitaha Charitable Trust (MKWCT)

The Manawhenua Ki Waitaha Charitable Trust board was established to ensure manawhenua have oversight and influence on the decision making of the Canterbury District Health Board. Manawhenua Ki Waitaha Charitable Trust has the mandate of Papatipu Rūnanga and is supported by Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu (TRoNT) as the Ngāi Tahu representative body in Canterbury for health issues.

South Island Alliance

This is an alliance between the five South Island DHBs: Canterbury, Nelson Marlborough, West Coast, South Canterbury, and Southern. The DHBs work collaboratively to develop more innovative and efficient health services than could be achieved independently. The alliance’s vision is a clinically and fiscally sustainable South Island health system – best for patients, best for system.
