Not seeing any change
Not seeing any change to care provided. I had expected that the region's services would be more integrated and serve as hubs. Still disjointed and no continuity of care or greater access to service. Have personally visited a GP in the Hutt Valley who referred me to secondary care a specialist at Hutt Hopsital, only for my referral to be declined 3 weeks later because I technically live in the "CCDHB" catchment. Had to start referral process and clock all over again to be referred to someone at Wellington. We are in same region - it needs to be aligned and integrated.
Why the contribution is important
Without integrated services and integrated care, outcomes worsen due to slow or no continuity of care.
