Health Care Services Plan
The District has been working on developing a new Health Care Services Plan aimed at supporting the District to deliver its vision of “Excellent services, quality partnerships, healthy communities”.
The Draft Plan presents a new and innovative approach to delivering health care in the Illawarra Shoalhaven region. The Plan proposes a population-based approach to service planning, where people will be supported to stay well in their communities through better access to health services.
The Plan focusses on the health of the communities in the Illawarra Shoalhaven, identifying the population groups that are at high risk of poor health, and assessing the District’s current burden of disease and modifiable risk factors.
The Plan has a strong focus on the social factors that impact health and the importance of addressing these areas in order to understand and prevent the underlying causes of ill health within our communities.
The Plan presents the District’s vision for its future health system, and the key focus areas which will help us achieve this vision.
We value your opinion and believe your feedback on this Plan is critical to its success in the future. Health is everyone’s responsibility, and with your support and involvement we are confident that this Plan can make a big difference to how health care is delivered in our District.
