Health Targets

Published to encourage public scrutiny of the health sector, the six health targets cover shorter waiting times for emergency department treatment, smoking, immunisation, diabetes and cardiovascular services as well as reduced waiting times for critical cancer treatment and elective surgery.

Health targets are essential performance indicators, providing district health boards a focus for action and can be measured as to the impact they are making in improving health for all New Zealanders.
