Collective Action for Communities

Localities are considered as a community of interest used for the purposes of localising primary and community-based care.

The locality is intended to drive a focus on equity and priority populations based on the identified needs and priorities of that community.

Collective action with communities creates a major opportunity to foster integration of care models and services to ensure people have greater choice over the services they access. It also provides a platform for health and wellbeing networks to be in the driving seat of design and implementation of localised initiatives.

It is vital that those with lived experiences within a community are part of the network and are provided with a platform to be heard. Networks or localities are supported by a Collective Impact Framework that creates an approach to creating a shared vision or common agenda.
A natural extension of the HCH MoC is the shift to the creation of a network of services to support whānau and community.

Aifou called her practice to book an appointment for a suspected UTI. Within minutes, her doctor had called her back and was able to assess her needs over the phone. The doctor then booked Aifou to see the nurse that same morning, using a standing order to enable the nurse to prescribe antibiotics if necessary. During her appointment, the nurse also notices that Aifou is due for a cervical screening and a mammogram, and books these in with the appropriate service providers with Aifou present.

“The nurse was really good. She even put the phone on speaker so that I could hear what was going on”
