New online health tool to aid patients


Accessing health information in the Bay fo Plenty has been made easier following the launch of a new health web tool.


Health Minister Tony Ryall said people could now access, in one place, health information specific to their district health board (DHB) region through web tool My DHB.


This included rest home audits, health funding and health target results.


"My DHB also includes information and contact details for general practices, dentists, midwives and other professionals in each region," Mr Ryall said.


"Most of this information has previously been available however it has been on a number of different websites and hasn't always been that easy to find.


"This new web tool pulls all the information together in one place so it is much easier for the public to find to enable them to make more informed choices about their healthcare."
