Midlands Regional Health Network Charitable Trust Board

Established in 2010, the trust focuses on a regional approach to delivering outstanding primary health services.

The trust is the primary health organisation within the group. It works closely with the Midland DHBs (Lakes, Tairāwhiti, Taranaki and Waikato) to develop a holistic system for better health outcomes across primary, community and secondary health care.

The key founding partners include:
  • Pinnacle Incorporated
  • Te Hauora o Turanganui a Kiwa - a Māori primary care health provider for four Iwi entities of Turanga based in Gisborne
  • Ngā kōrero a Tui Ora - the largest community-based health and social services provider in Taranaki.
The Trust operates as a not for profit charitable trust providing stewardship of the regional primary care plan, as developed and supported by the founding partners, and community representatives.

The key strategic initiatives of the Trust are:
  • leveraging the power of our regional collective talent, knowledge, economies, capability, influence on the national system
  • high quality services and actions
  • striving for superior health outcomes for our population in the Midland region, particularly those most marginalised/vulnerable
  • high performance from the health providers we work with
  • positively impacting on national health targets
  • continued success of our individual organisations/members
  • supporting community-based intervention, while contributing to the evidence around the benefits of services delivered closer to home.

Facility development fund

The Trust acknowledges the real challenges general practices in the Pinnacle network often face in funding upgrades to practice facilities. We want to help incentivise practices to invest in improving their building and facilities so we have established a facility development fund specifically to provide funding support in the form of grants for practices in our network that are investing in new buildings or upgrades. For more information contact your practice support person.
