The Ashburton Service Level Alliance (Ashburton SLA) is working towards ensuring the people of Ashburton have access to the most appropriate and sustainable health services. The role of the Ashburton SLA is to recommend how to best allocate health services funding in Ashburton and provide a platform for local healthcare providers and community leaders to lead the redesign of Ashburton’s health services.

Key messages

  1. It has been agreed that the PHOs will jointly set expectations/guidelines to general practice on enrolment and transfer. The initial draft expectations/guidelines has been reviewed by the ASLA Work Group and further discussion will take place on how to localise the guidelines, including the utilisation of the new Partnership Community Worker (PCW) and Navigator roles within Ashburton.
  2. The ASLA reviewed and supported the paper on the Ashburton Service Level Alliance Consumer Forum. In summary, the ASLA Consumer Forum has a number of vacancies and recruitment throughout 2019 to fill the vacancies has been unsuccessful.  This has led to exploration and subsequent recommendations on how the consumer voice can be strengthened within the ASLA.  The ASLA endorsed the following – 
    - The consumer perspective on the Ashburton SLA is increased from one to two members to strengthen the consumer voice within the alliance. 
    - The Ashburton SLA and Ashburton Hospital will use existing processes, such as using groups already set with patient engagement when consumer input is required for specific pieces of work. For example, community/consumer input is sought in response to a specific and substantial service change. 
    - The Ashburton Consumer Forum is put into abeyance.
