New Wairarapa District Health Board chief execu- tive Graham Dyer is impressed with the efficiency of the services on this side of the hill and says one of the reasons he wanted the dual role of chief executive for both Wairarapa and Hutt Valley DHBs is similarity of values in both organisations. This is his first hands-on week in the role, return- ing from planned leave that started the day after he was appointed in late December. On both sides of the hill, there is a real can do attitude and a great willingness of clinicians and managers to work together to find the best solu- tions for patients, says Mr Dyer. Both boards take advantage of their size and the opportunities that presents, he says. Wai- rarapa serves a population of about 40,000 and Hutt about 150,000. Wairarapa Hospital has 80 beds with a maximum capacity of 96, and Hutt Hospital has 270 beds. Collectively the two boards employ about 3000 staff, 600 of them based in the Wairarapa. Even together we are still less than half the size of Capital & Coast DHB, but when the three DHBs work together we have an ideal size to be able to support a full range of health services, from community based through to high-level ter- tiary services for our regional population. Mr Dyer says the relatively small size of both boards allows more direct communication both within the organisations and with the local com- munities. The closer working relationship between the three DHBs depends on using all the existing capacity in the region. It does not signal hospital closure. Recently clinicians at Wairarapa Hospital start- ed providing some colonoscopy services for Hutt and Wellington patients, evening up wait times in the region and relieving pressure on waiting lists. Flowing the other way, very premature babies and patients needing investigation or surgery that needs high-level equipment or backup travel to Hutt or Wellington hospital, and sometimes beyond. They often come back to Wairarapa Hos- pital to recuperate. Mr Dyer says the process of amalgamating the executive management teams of the Wairarapa and Hutt Valley boards is under way and should be completed by the end of March. While we are looking to simplify processes for patients and make our services more efficient across the three DHBs, each DHB is still account- able to their community through their individual boards, he says.
