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.

South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Research Strategy 2017-2021

The SESLHD Research Strategy 2017-2021 recognises the fundamental importance of research, and is guided by two major objectives: building research capacity in SESLHD and fostering research and translation within SESLHD. It encompasses all SESLHD clinical and preventive services, whether they be in the community or in a hospital, all disciplines and professions – such as medicine, nursing, allied health, population health and quality improvement - along with clinical research, clinical trials, health services research, population health, improvement science, implementation research and more.

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.

The Strategy places research at the heart of SESLHD’s work to improve individual care and community health and wellbeing, and builds on our history of research excellence.

Aged Care Services Plan 2015 -2018

The Aged Care Services Plan 2015 -2018 is one of an important suite of South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Clinical Stream plans. The Plan has been informed by aged care strategies, plans and policies at local, state and national levels and has been developed for a range of audiences including the NSW Ministry of Health and other government sectors; health services; care providers and the wider community. It is consistent with NSW Government’s vision of delivering high quality services responsive to consumer and community needs. A key focus of the plan is on supporting community members to access the right services, at the right time, in the most appropriate setting and also reduce the burden and impact of long term conditions on the health system. Our aged care services will work with other service providers across the District and beyond to support a better understanding of the unique requirements of older people.

Providing efficient, comprehensive care for older persons is one of the most important issues currently facing the SESLHD. The development of various service improvements, innovations and models of care to better support older people has occurred incrementally across the District over recent years.

Aged care services across the SESLHD will continue to recurrently evaluate their services to determine the quality of care being provided to older people and identify opportunities for improvement in line with new and emerging best practice models and approaches to care delivery. A continuous system improvement approach to ensure that best practice is shared among our facilities, services and beyond will also be maintained.

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.
