This page is a directory of policies and procedures that guide our staff in their delivery of effective and evidence based healthcare.
Policies and procedures play an important role by defining an organisation's principles, they provide our staff with instructions and form our governance structure. They encompass our CORE values of Collaboration, Openness, Respect and Empowerment.
Governance documents may be known as Policies, Procedures, Business Rules, Information Bulletins, Protocols, Frameworks or Guidelines.
Ministry of Health Policy Directives and Guidelines
The Minister for Health through the NSW Ministry of Health sets policy for health services in NSW. These documents are released as NSW Health Policy Directives and employees of all public health facilities within the state are required to comply with them.
SESLHD Policy Directives and Guidelines
The South Eastern Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD) is required to comply with all Ministry of Health policies. Our local documents support Ministry of Health documents and provide localised content. Our policies guide our staff and ensure consistency and quality in our health service delivery.
The Framework for Governance of Policy Documents in SESLHD outlines the system for the development, approval and management of policies and guidelines in the SESLHD.
You can search for SESLHD policies in three ways: by title, by functional group, or by using the standard search function found in the top right of every page.
