The Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSW LHD) Service Agreement 2019-20 has recently been endorsed by the NNSW LHD Executive and the NNSW LHD Board.
Each year, NNSW LHD enters into a Service Agreement with NSW Health. Service Agreements articulate the strategic priorities for the health system and recognise local priorities. It sets performance and accountability requirements for each health service as measured against key performance indicators and the delivery of NSW Health Strategic Priorities 2019/20. Service Agreements are key components of the NSW Performance Framework.
