Introduction


 

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 information is important to you as a Reo Ora - Health Voice community member.

 

Information collection

 

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 us. This information will be collected and stored on a secure database by our software provider, Buzz Channel Limited, who is an Auckland-based company.

The information collected will only be used by Auckland District Health Board for 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 related agencies.

Buzz Channel/ Point Research will only use the information collected for analysis and reporting survey results.

 

Information Disclosure

 

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 to individuals.

 

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.

Waitemata & Auckland District Health Board’s Disability Strategy Implementation Plan 2016-2026

We are developing a joint plan for the Implementation of the New Zealand Disability Strategy 2016-2026. We would really like input from the disability sector and disability community.

Please follow this link to our on-line survey. We ask you about the five key outcome areas that align with the work of District Health Boards.

We are also holding two community meetings for people who prefer to communicate their thoughts and ideas face-to-face or would like to add more to their survey responses.

Please visit the What's On section of the site for more information on the meetings.
