Midland Governance

One Region


The Midland Clinical Portal is a regionally-focussed programme that is governed through an integrated structure.

Collectively our governance bodies are responsible for the strategic direction of our programme as well as play an active role in driving, implementing and reinforcing a borderless and patient-centred health system.

CEO Governance Group

Made up of the Chief Executives from each of the five Te Manawa Taki DHBs, the CEOGG monitors the performance of the programme and are an escalation point if required.

Programme Board

Te Manawa Taki DHBs are represented on the Programme Board, which is responsible for reviewing programme progress and interim results on a frequent, scheduled cycle. The Board also takes responsibility for delivery and ensuring alignment with the overall strategic vision and delivery timeframes.

Authority Groups

The Programme Board is supported by a Clinical, Design and Operational authority. These bodies provide input to and endorsement of the implementation of the programme's business and service transformation activities and ensure alignment with national and regional strategies. Most programme artefacts need to pass through at least one of these three bodies before being authorised by the Programme Board.

The Midland Clinical Portal has always been clinician-led and our overwhelming goal is to make it easier for all clinical staff to do their jobs and to support them by giving them the information and tools to do the right thing for their patients, at the right time”
