Southern DHB is the Government-funded organisation responsible for most publicly funded primary health and hospital services in the Southland and Otago regions of New Zealand.

The former Southland DHB and Otago DHB were one of 21 district health boards that were established nationally on January 1, 2001 under the NZ Public Health and Disability Act 2000 (NZPHD). They are the first to have merged to form a new entity.

Southern DHB has a staff of approximately 4,500 and, following the replacement of the Board made up of publicly elected and government appointed members, in June 2015, is currently governed by a Commissioner and two deputy Commissioners appointed by her. A Clinician from outside the district is yet to be appointed as the third deputy Commissioner. The Commissioner is accountable to the Minister of Health and holds office until the persons elected at the next election of members of Boards, scheduled for October 2016, take office as Board members.

As a DHB, we are responsible for planning, funding and providing health and disability services to a population of over 304,268 located South of the Waitaki River. Our catchment area encompasses Invercargill City, Queenstown - Lakes District, Gore, rural Southland, Clutha, Central Otago, Maniototo, Waitaki District and Dunedin City.
