ISLHD - Community Health Review

29-Jun-2017
     

 



ASMOF has been provided with correspondence from Caroline Langston, ISLHD Executive Director of Integrated Care, Mental Health, Planning, Information and Performance regarding a review of Community Health across ISLHD.

ASMOF was first made aware of this review at a recent ISLHD JCC meeting and raised concerns that we had not been consulted in relation to any proposed review. In the correspondence ISLHD has apologised for the oversight in not advising ASMOF.

The review is being undertaken by PWC. This review will bring together information on best-practice models, service data and information from staff and stakeholders across the District.

Services in scope for the review are:
  • All Ambulatory and Primary Health Care services
  • Public Health Unit
  • Community based early childhood services
  • Community based aged care services funded by NSW
  • Community based chronic disease nursing services
The relationship between these services and District’s Hospital in the Home (HITH) services will also be considered.

The correspondence also includes communication to staff from the CE Margo Mains and the PWC full Review Scope.

The review will commence within the next fortnight and is expected to be complete within 8 to 10 weeks.

Any concerns/comments should be directed to Industrial Organiser, Kerrie Seymour, via email kerries@asmof.org.au
