Development of our new Strategic Plan

NSLHD has commenced a new process to develop our next NSLHD Strategic Plan 2022-2027. The Strategic Plan will guide our District over the next five years and articulate how we will achieve our goals, leverage opportunities and add to our existing strengths. The new Strategic Plan will also build on the achievements of the NSLHD Strategic Plan 2017-2022 which will conclude this year.

We are a large and diverse organisation and will have ambitious goals that will shape how we look by the year 2027. NSLHD has a population over 900,000, covers an area of 900km2 and has an expense budget of approximately $1.8 billion. In 2020/21, NSLHD performed more than 28,000 operations, saw 155,328 Emergency Department presentations, delivered nearly 4,000 babies and provided 600,000 occasions of service to 120,000 patients in outpatient clinics. 

Central to the development of our next Strategic Plan, will be our commitment to the delivery of high-quality healthcare and dedication to ensuring our consumers and patients get the best possible care in the right place, at the right time.

NSLHD will continue to partner with our local community and build partnerships to deliver on our goals. We will continue to embrace innovative clinical care, cutting-edge research, be environmentally sustainable and provide the very best educational and research opportunities for all of our staff.

To ensure this happens, the NSLHD Strategic Plan 2022-2027 will be developed through extensive consultation with staff, community, consumer and patient representatives and service delivery partners. The Plan will also be developed with reference to the NSLHD service agreement with NSW Health, and the new NSW Health Future Health: Strategic Framework 2022-2032.​

Have your say 

The input of our consumers, carers and community members is really important to the development of our new Strategic Plan and we would like to invite you to provide your feedback on NSLHD's strengths, challenges and opportunities, and get your thoughts on our direction over the next five years.

To help us develop the Strategic Plan, we are calling on the community to complete the anonymous Consumer and Community survey.

The survey should only take 5-10 minutes to complete and will close at 5:00pm Sunday 22 May 2022.
