All advisory committees

Community and Public Health Advisory Committee (CPHAC)

The role of the CPHAC is to provide the Board with advice on the health and disability needs of Tairāwhiti’s population. The CPHAC reports on anything significant that may affect our population’s health and it also advises the Board on which issues are most important.

The CPHAC advises the Board on how services are funded and/or provided by the DHB, and how the DHB’s policies, will impact on our population.  The CPHAC also analyses relevant reports and makes recommendations to the Board. The CPHAC makes sure that any advice it provides to the Board is consistent with national strategies and government policy.


Hospital Advisory Committee

The Hospital Advisory Committee has a key governance role to:

  • Oversee the key financial, clinical and operational performance of the hospitals (and related services) of the DHB; and
  • Assess strategic issues relating to the provision of hospital services by or through the DHB; and
  • Give the Board advice and recommendations on that oversight and that assessment of the strategic development of the services.


Aged and Disability Support Advisory Committee

The Aged and Disability Support Advisory Committee (ADSAC)

The role of the DSAC is to tell the Board about the needs of the people with impairments in our district and prioritise the use of the funding provided to DHBs for those with a disability.  The committee makes sure that the services provided or funded, and the policies adopted, promote the inclusion and participation of people with impairments in our society, to maximise their independence.


Finance, Audit and IT Committee

The Finance, Audit and IT (FAIT) Committee's role is to monitor the financial performance of the DHB.

The committee also liaises with external auditors and receives reports from the internal auditor.
