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.

South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Equity Strategy

Everyone should have a fair opportunity to live a long and healthy life.  

Although the health of our District as a whole compares favourably with other parts of NSW, when we dig beneath the surface there are substantial differences in access to services and health outcomes for different groups.  

The Equity Strategy outlines our vision and framework for promoting fairness in health and wellbeing for our local communities. The framework recognises that by leveraging community assets, frontline service providers can develop solutions better tailored to service user need, increasing their impact. Service users and communities experience improved service outcomes and become partners in the delivery of their own care, building their capacity and resilience for the future.

The strategy was developed following consultation workshops with over 200 staff in attendance, and an online survey with more than 200 responses. It also involved consultations with external experts and research partners.

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.
