NNSWLHD Service Agreement 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2013
The Service Agreement outlines the objectives of the LHD.
The key goals of the NSW public sector health system are to help people stay healthy and to provide access to timely, high quality, patient-centred health care.
Achieving these goals requires clear priorities, supportive leadership and staff working together, underpinned by the core values.
One important way the CORE values can be realised is through active engagement of Local Health Districts and other Health Services with the NSW Health Performance Framework. This Agreement supports the devolution of decision making, responsibility and accountability for the provision of safe, high quality, patient centred care to Local Health Districts by setting out the service and performance expectations and funding for the Northern NSW Local Health District.
