Planning Principles

South Western Sydney Local Health District has development overarching Planning Principles. These principles underpin the approaches taken to clinical, service and redevelopment planning for the district.

  • Collaborative Co-design with key stakeholders (Consumers, Clinicians, Local Health District (LHD), Primary Health Network (PHN), General Practitioners (GPs), Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) and other health care providers)

  • Taking a Health Care Neighbourhood approach to foster healthy communities in South West Sydney

  • Undertake a LHD wide, networked approach to planning to ensure consistency and equity to service delivery

  • Using available and emerging technologies to support care that is integrated across health providers and centred around patient and carer needs

  • Facilitate seamless transition for health consumers between service providers (NGOs, GPs, PHNs, LHD services) – right care, right place

  • Ensuring equity in access for vulnerable communities

  • Transform patient expectations and experiences of care. More care in the community closer to where people live

  • Empower consumers and support their navigation through the health system

  • Embedding translational research in how we work

  • Well located, ensuring easy access (transport) by the community

  • Ensure financially sustainable models of service delivery

  • Building capability of staff and partner service providers
