  • Building effective working relationships with, and between group members, encouraging trust and respect, contribution by all members, and maintaining an open and transparent relationship outside of the meeting.
  • Leading continuous improvement through the Terms of Reference and group evaluations.
  • Ensuring that appropriate CCN Work Plans are developed and contribute to the Canterbury health system’s Strategic Focus.
  • Ensuring delivery on the Child & Youth Health Work Plan priorities is monitored effectively, with timely reporting to the Programme Office and Alliance Leadership Team, as required.
  • Ensuring succession of group membership is actively discussed and that formal succession plans for the group are in place.
  • Facilitating alignment and connection across relevant CCN alliance groups. 
  • Acting as a conduit to the CCN Programme Office (alongside the group facilitator).
