The national health targets are a set of national performance measures specifically designed to improve the performance of health services. They provide a focus for action and are reviewed annually to ensure they align with government health priorities.

There are seven national health targets:

  1. Shorter stays in Emergency Departments
  2. Improved access to elective surgery
  3. Shorter waits for cancer treatment
  4. Increased immunisation
  5. Better help for smokers to quit
  6. More heart and diabetes checks
  7. Raising healthy kids

In this quarter, Hutt Valley DHB has achieved a consistent improvement in the shorter stays in Emergency Department target and achieved the immunisation target.
