Opportunities to engage
As we develop and finalise the Centres, Specialty Service Plans and Models of Care over the next 12-18 months, we will be engaging with the health and community sector in a range of ways, noting that certain areas of the clinical and community development work will be more relevant to particular groups than others. As part of this, we will also be drawing on expert advice from clinicians, health personnel and relevant health care consumers, incorporating established best practice and advancements in medical technologies and innovation that are achievable within our budget.
An initial information forum was held in December 2016 with Non- Government Organisations (NGOs) currently involved in the delivery of health services in the ACT.
On 20 April 2017, the Director General wrote to a broad range of internal and external stakeholders inviting them to register their interest in receiving future updates.
ACT Health has been putting together the data and information to support the development of Specialty Service Plans, and initial consultations on specific plans have already commenced.
ACT Health is establishing a Territory-wide Health Services Advisory Group, made up of individuals and health and consumer organisations, where input from each member's relevant sector will provide guidance on the development of Territory-wide health services planning. Expressions of interest for the Territory-wide Health Services Advisory Group have now closed.
Together, we will deliver a fully integrated, Territory-wide health system that is person and family-centred, safe and effective, and adaptable to the community’s changing needs.
