WSLHD Health Services Plan: Growing Good Health in Western Sydney

The Health Services Plan: Growing Good Health in Western Sydney sets out our long-term plans and priorities for health care delivery in our hospitals, community health facilities and home services until 2026.

The Plan has been developed in consultation with staff, health partners including the Western Sydney Primary Health Network and Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, and consumer representatives. It is designed to be flexible and responsive as contemporary health care evolves.

In Western Sydney Local Health District, we plan to direct more resources to priority groups with significant health needs, including children, young people and families, people living with a mental illness, older people, Aboriginal people, people with chronic and complex conditions, and people from diverse cultural backgrounds.

We will further invest in facilities and services, health technology and research and education. We also plan to connect more effectively with partners in our health care neighbourhood. Building stronger connections with primary care networks and other health care providers will ensure patients receive the best possible care, whether it is at home, in the community or at hospital.

The WSLHD Health Services Plan sits alongside and aligns with the WSLHD Better West Strategic Priorities 2017-2021.

Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) Better West Strategic Priorities 2017- 2021

Our vision is to strive to become the healthiest population in NSW with an aim to be a trusted partner of our community, delivering modern cutting edge healthcare.

We want to create communities where people can live well, stay well and manage well; an environment where people are supported to improve their health and to live to their full potential; where individuals; their family and carers are active participants with a collective responsibility for optimising health outcomes. We are committed to working in partnership to deliver better health together.

Our focus will be on six priorities

  • Patient Experience Matters
  • Healthy People
  • Integrated Research, Education and Clinical Care
  • Exceptional People
  • Information Underpins Everything We Do
  • Spending Wisely

Our strategic priorities reflect our commitment to delivering modern health care in the areas that matter most to western Sydney. We will influence better health and well-being in our growing community. Achieving our priorities requires a shift in our resource investment and a redesign of our business. Our collective work over the last five years has stabilised our operations and consolidated our services, positioning our organisation to meet future health demands with confidence. We will be a stronger, healthier business over the next 5 – 10 years.

Western Sydney’s healthcare needs tackled at public forum

Record numbers took part in WSLHD's 2018 Annual Public Meeting and Western Sydney Health Forum.

More than a hundred people attended in person at the Rooty Hill RSL and just over 1,000 people checked into the event’s first-ever live stream on the District’s Facebook page.

The event opened with traditional songs performed by Caroline Norman, Indigenous singer from the Darug Nation, joined by her one-year-old son, and an official Welcome to Country by Uncle Greg Simms.

WSLHD board chair Richard Alcock and acting chief executive Graeme Loy then updated the community on all the highlights from the year that was, thanked staff for their hard work and outlined the district’s health challenges and plans for the future.

A/chief executive Graeme Loy officially launched the WSLHD Health Services Plan to 2026, which is a blueprint for delivering healthcare to the community of Western Sydney over the next eight years.
