NSW State Health Plan
The NSW State Health Plan: Towards 2021 has set two overarching goals for health care services in NSW:
- Keep people healthy and out of hospital
- Providing world class clinical services with timely access and effective infrastructure
The NSW State Health Plan provides directions and strategies to deliver these state health goals.
NSW Rural Health Plan
The NSW Rural Health Plan: Towards 2021 was developed to strengthen the capacity of NSW rural health services to provide connected and seamless care, as close to regional, rural and remote NSW communities as possible.
The Strategic Plan
Our strategic plan sets an overall direction and priorities for the Western NSW local Health District. It helps us focus our energy and resources to work toward common goals.
We invite communities, organisations and key stakeholders across our District to read the Strategic Plan, to develop a better understanding of our high level priorities and goals.
Our Clinical Services Framework
The Clinical Services Framework (CSF) provides direction and priorities for our key clinical services for the next five years. It recognises that our clinical services must evolve to meet a changing service environment, developments in models of care, technology and research, and emerging healthcare needs of our people. The CSF is intended to guide service planning, design and delivery into the future.
The CSF outlines six priorities for clinical service development and future directions for each core clinical service.
Together with the WNSWLHD Strategic Plan 2020-2025, the CSF is a key guiding document for our District.

- Chronic Disease Services Plan 2012-2016

Our Reconciliation Action Plan
Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) was launched on 14th September 2017 by Professor Tom Calma, Co-Chair Reconciliation Australia and our Chief Executive, Scott Mclachlan. The launch took place during the 2017 Aboriginal Health Forum, which was attended by more than 100 members of our workforce.
The RAP is about what our organisation can do to contribute to reconciliation in Australia. It will help us develop a more culturally safe and tolerant workplace that will contribute to improving service delivery to Aboriginal peoples, their families and communities.
Safety & Quality Account
In the Safety and Quality Account we highlight the exceptional work of our District teams in delivering reliable and resilient care in a time of complexity and uncertainty.
We acknowledge the challenges of providing world class rural health care while our communities are facing pandemic, floods and a devastating mice plague. In the face of these challenges, our District has continued to improve the care we provide to our most vulnerable and to enhance the patient experience, creating opportunities for innovation as we continually seek to deliver services to meet the needs of our communities.
