In early 2015, there were a number of serious events at the Waikato District Health Board mental health and addiction services.

Following these events, Dr John Crawshaw, Director of Mental Health, decided to use his statutory powers under section 99 of the Mental Health (Compulsory Assessment and Treatment Act) 1992 to inspect the services to ensure they are providing a good quality of care to people in the Waikato region.

Dr Crawshaw, alongside colleagues from the Ministry of Health and a consumer leader from Te Kupenga Net Trust, carried out this inspection in August 2015.

This document is the final report from that inspection.
