Vision and Strategies

Our Vision

At South Western Sydney Local Health District our vision is Leading care, healthier communities.
Our vision drives our Strategic Directions and all the work we do across our facilities and services.

Our Values

The CORE values are fundamental to provision of health service across NSW and are the foundation stones for building trust.  They underpin all the activities of the District and define how staff and services work together and collaborate with patients, carers, the community and service partners in delivering health care and improving the health of the community.




Working as one team with patients, carers, the community and other service partners



Services are transparent and open and explain the reason for decisions



Everyone involved in patient care or a health project can contribute and their views will be heard, valued and respected



Staff, patients, carers and the community can make choices and influence outcomes. Systems and processes will enable participation, supply necessary information, support delegation and ensure accountability
