When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you’re part of something very special.

Our Culture: What Matters To Us

Ko Te Whatu Manawa Tangata

Putting people at the heart of all we do 

For us to continue putting our communities at the centre of our health system, we’re putting our own people at the centre of everything we do.  Because health is ultimately all about people.  What’s important around here is the way we care for and respect others, the responsibility that all our people take for delivering outcomes, and that we go about our work with integrity in all we do. 

What matters to us is doing the right thing, valuing everyone, and being and staying well ourselves so we can care for our community.
