The number and focus of our groups change as the needs and focus of the health system change. However, the overarching structure of CCN remains the same.
The role of the Alliance Leadership Team is to provide leadership to the overarching direction of CCN’s groups and focus the work of the programme team.
The Alliance Support Team provides advice and guidance on the prioritisation and resourcing of proposals from alliance work groups before they are submitted to the Alliance Leadership Team.
CCN's Programme Team coordinates the activity of the alliance, providing day-to-day operational support including programme leadership and management, communications, facilitation and administration to CCN groups and supports alliance partnerships.
When a new piece of work or area of focus is identified, the programme team will make a recommendation to ALT about how the work should be managed. This determines what type of group we set up.
The membership of any of our groups includes urban and rural health professionals who are involved with providing or referring to existing health services, who work in related services, management from relevant health organisations and others who bring important perspective such as consumer, Māori, Pacific, culturally and linguistically diverse, youth and rural voices.
Members can extend beyond the partners in the district alliance and include the broader NGO sector, consumers and other government agencies.
There are some differences in the purpose and expectations of these groups.
