South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Strategy

The Strategy 2012-2017 outlines the vision, values, purpose, principles for decision making, our priorities and desired outcomes for our organisation and services over the next five years.

The Strategy was informed by local clinicians, other service delivery partners, the wider community and available data and information about our population and health services.  The Strategy sets the stage for increased local decision making by frontline service staff and patients about the directions, priorities and actions required to protect and improve the health and wellbeing of our community.

South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Health Care Services Plan

The Health Care Services Plan 2012-2017 provides the direction for the development of our services and programs to ensure they remain focused on addressing the health needs of the community.  The Plan is forward looking, laying the foundation for sustainable health care.

A comprehensive consultation and engagement process was undertaken throughout the Plan’s development to provide staff, partners and community members with the opportunity to contribute their views and expertise. This process was designed to ensure that the Health Care Services Plan 2012-2017 will be relevant, effective and meaningful to those who will enact and/or benefit from it. The plan promotes sound decision-making in reconfiguring services and innovative solutions to optimise service delivery and patient outcomes.

The SESLHD Disability Action Plan

South Eastern Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD) provides health services to all people in south eastern Sydney. People with disabilities may come into contact with the health service in a variety of ways such as: management of health issues relating to the disability, for other acute or chronic conditions, or as participants in community programs. It is essential that health services and staff are respectful, supportive and empowering and work in ways that are person-centred and flexible.  This focus should include not only the person with the disability but also their carers, families and support systems.

The SESLHD Disability Action Plan 2012-2015 will help us reduce barriers and better meet the needs of people with disabilities. We will continue to improve our services for patients and carers by listening and acting upon the feedback we receive and by building and strengthening partnerships with our consumers, carers, general practitioners, and government and community agencies. 

SESLHD Falls Injury Prevention Plan 2013-2018

The SESLHD Falls Injury Prevention Plan describes a set of evidenced-based priorities and actions to be undertaken to prevent falls and fall injuries in our District over the next 5 years.

The Plan is divided into 2 sections- Prevention in the Community and Prevention in Health Facilities. The Plan takes a life course approach to falls prevention, acknowledging that our best opportunity to prevent falls in the future is to promote healthy bones and physical activity in the younger population.

Whilst it importantly concentrates on falls in our older populations where the vast majority occur, the Falls Injury Prevention Plan also acknowledges and considers falls prevention in other vulnerable populations such as people accessing mental health, maternity and paediatric services and people from Aboriginal and culturally diverse backgrounds.
