Canterbury Care Coordination celebrates first decade

CareCo 10 years

Opening in 2004, Canterbury is the oldest of the three Care Coordination Services. It has seen many changes over it's lifetime, however the core business has always been in referral management and ensuring referrers and providers are supported so community based clients receive timely and appropriate care.

The amount of referrals flowing through the system has increased dramatically since we started. In 2005 the service managed 13,600 referrals and this year is on target to manage 29,700 (an average of nearly 2,500 per month). The service also provides and important contact point for clients, families and health professionals seeking advice on how to access community services.
