Update on status of national health targets

Work is underway to develop a new set of performance measures. While this work is in progress, we will only provide the raw health targets data. We will not develop separate reports or infographics, or present data by primary health organisation. See How is my DHB performing? for the latest data.

For more information on the development of new measures, see the Health targets page.
