The Hurunui Health Services Development Group (HHSDG) was formed in 2015 to provide oversight to health service improvement and sustainability initiatives in the Hurunui region. 

The group has the mandate to review current service activities for the Hurunui population with the intention of identifying areas and recommending where improvements can be made in the appropriate use of resources, improved patient outcomes, and/or service levels.

The HHSDG has strong links with the Rural Health Workstream.
