In late 2017 the State Services Commission (SSC) published the Performance Improvement Framework (PIF) Review of the Ministry of Health.
The PIF is based on where the Ministry is placed relative to its Four-year Excellence Horizon – a vision for the future of the health system and the Ministry’s role within it.
In April 2018 we provided a formal response to SSC on the PIF review. The response mixes quick wins with expectations for results over the next 12 months. It was well received by Hon Dr David Clark, Minister of Health and State Services Commissioner Peter Hughes.
Our response outlines how we’ll improve the performance of our organisation, align our resources and work programme to the Government’s priorities (mental health, achieving equity, child wellbeing and primary health care), and work with the health sector to achieve them.
