Help us plan the future of regional health in NSW.

We are developing the new Regional Health Plan 2022-2032 to guide the strategic focus of NSW Health to better serve rural, regional and remote communities across NSW for the next ten years.

The draft plan has been informed by our previous work and what we have heard from key stakeholders.

So far there has been 68 consultation sessions with 1,600 people across NSW as well as more than 2,000 surveys completed. Experiences and insight from stakeholders from across the health sector have also been drawn upon to develop key priorities. This includes local health staff, councils, Primary Health Networks (PHNs), professional associations, training organisations, non-government organisations, ACCHO, community organisation, charities, affiliated organisations and healthcare providers, volunteers, community members, carers, consumers.

‘Regional’ includes all rural, regional, and remote areas of NSW. It includes areas within the rural and regional local health districts and Albury/Wodonga Health: Central Coast, Far West, Hunter New England, Illawarra Shoalhaven, Mid North Coast, Murrumbidgee, Northern NSW, Southern NSW, Western NSW. Some areas of other local health districts may also be considered regional for the purpose of this plan, such as South Western Sydney and Nepean Blue Mountains.

This draft framework provides an overview of the 10-year deliverables and goals which will improve regional health outcomes.

This consultation is for NSW Health.

Have your say consultations are run by the NSW Department of Customer Service (McKell Building, 2-4 Rawson Place, Haymarket NSW 2000).

We are interested in hearing from the community and will use the information we collect from you to help develop the programs and services that NSW Government provides.

We are collecting only minimal personal information from you. We may collect basic information like your name and contact details, if you choose to provide them. You may provide some personal information in response to questions that we ask you. For example, we may ask you about your experiences or opinions about a particular topic.

Having your say is voluntary and you are not legally required to provide any personal information to us. For some consultations, though, you will not be able to have your say unless you agree to include your personal information.

If you do provide personal information to us, you have a right to access it, and can ask us to correct it if it is wrong.

We may share personal information you provide with other parts of the Department of Customer Service (for example, with our Data Analytics Centre) so that we can conduct analysis across all consultations and refine our engagement methodology.

Where we conduct a consultation on behalf of a partner agency, we would usually share the information that we collect with that agency. Partner agencies for each consultation are listed on the webpage for that consultation.
