South Western Sydney Communities
South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD) is the largest and fastest growing District in metropolitan Sydney.
With a population of over 820,000 people, the communities in this District are socially, economically, culturally and linguistically diverse. An overview of the demographic and health characteristics of South Western Sydney communities is provided in the Health Profile of Local Communities .
There are seven local government areas (LGA) in South Western Sydney. Each LGA has its own unique population including the multiculturally diverse communities of Fairfield and Bankstown, the rapidly growing communities of Campbelltown, Liverpool and Camden and the rural towns, villages and communities of Wollondilly and Wingecarribee.
The Community Profiles summarise the main demographic and health characteristics of each LGA. Over the next ten years, health services in South Western Sydney will face many challenges.
These changes will have a significant impact on demand for local health services and the type and range of services required. To meet the needs of our local communities over the next decade, greater attention will be needed in planning for prevention and treatment services.
