Central Primary Health Organization is being claimed as lagging behind other PHOs on the PHO league tables, a recent report has uncovered.
It is being affirmed by Health Minister Tony Ryall that the Central PHO is in urgent need of making overhauls in its system and bringing improvements.
"The league tables show how well PHOs are supporting GPs to achieve these targets and improve the health of New Zealanders. It also highlights where they can make improvements”, said Mr. Ryall.
The warnings have come after noticing that the PHO ranks at seventh position when it comes to the vaccination of 2-year-olds. As per the findings, nearly 93.5% of children of age 2 years had received complete vaccinations.
The same is, however, certainly up from the last quarter’s figure i. e. 91.2%. But, the increased figure is still failing to meet the national target, which has been set at 95%.
Also, the same covering Manawatu, Horowhenua and Tararua was placed at 27th position when advice on smoking cessation services and cardiovascular risk assessments were considered.
Nonetheless, General Manager for the Central PHO, Joe Howells, has been insisting that the company has been making its best efforts so as to achieve each target. The company is being asked to make changes.
