This website is for Auckland District Health Board to collect feedback and information
through survey and discussion forums about how services are and could be provided
and about proposed improvements and plans.
This will mainly be for Auckland District Health Board purposes but you may also
be asked to participate in surveys or discussions on behalf of related organisations
such as other District Health Boards or the Ministry of Health. We welcome your
feedback and comments but you do not have to participate in any survey or forum
if you do not want to.
Commitment to your privacy and responsible use of information
Auckland District Health Board and Buzz Channel / Point Research are committed to
ensuring the privacy of your information and we understand that the privacy of your

When you complete your registration as a community member and any subsequent survey
or discussion we will collect and store the information you choose to provide to

consultation and feedback consistent with the DHB's purpose and objectives. Consultation
and feedback will be for planning Auckland District Health Board services, to collect
feedback about service experience, and to monitor quality improvement. We may also
run surveys or discussions on behalf of related other District Health Boards or
agencies (e.g. Ministry of Health) and may disclose consolidated information to

and reporting survey results.
The information you provide and we collect will be aggregated and anonymised into
qualitative and quantitative results. That is, individuals will not be named. Where
verbatim (word for word) comments are published in reports these will not be linked
Information collected as a result of surveys will usually be visible to the participant
in a summarised form some time after the survey is run. Participants will be able
to review their own comments through their member homepage.
Comments collected in discussion forums will be visible to other discussion forum
members and in reports. Discussions are accessible to those who have accepted invitations
to join the forum and the forum's moderator (a member of Auckland District Health
Board, Point Research, or the Buzz Channel team). Information collected as a result
of discussions may be shown in a summarised and anonymised way in reports or, where
verbatim (word for word) comments are published, these will not be linked to individuals.
Reports from surveys and discussions will be used within Auckland District Health
Board for internal purposes and objectives; clinical staff will not see personal
details you provide.
Occasionally, surveys and discussions may be run on behalf of a third party, such
as the Ministry of Health or another District Health Board, by Auckland District
Health Board and our software and research providers, Buzz Channel and Point Research.
That fact will be disclosed to you.
Your prior consent would be sought should a third party wish to contact you directly
or use the individual information that we hold, unless otherwise authorised by law.
