Each of the 21 DHBs is required
to enter into a funding agreement with the Crown, and publish an annual
plan and a long term strategic plan.
DHBs must consult on the DSP. The plan must be consistent with national strategies and be reviewed every three years. If a DHB makes significant amendments, it must consult with the public on these changes.
District annual plans must
also be produced and made publicly available. The annual plan must be
consistent with the district strategic plan. These annual plans are more
about what the DHB intends to do in the current year, and how that relates
to the DSP and the proposed funding for those activities. They also include
the expected performance and how that performance will be measured.
