Strategic planning

Needs assessment

Our baseline needs assessment was submitted to the Department of Health on 30 March 2016. The needs assessment was undertaken in partnership with South Eastern Sydney Local Health District, Sydney Local Health District, St Vincent’s Hospital Network and Sydney Children’s Hospital Network.

The report identifies the health needs and health service needs of the central and eastern Sydney community, and is used to help us prioritise our activities.

This is an iterative process, with our needs assessment to be updated on an ongoing basis.
