What is the Territory-wide Health Services Framework 2017 – 2027?
The Territory-wide Health Services Framework is a high level document that will guide the development and redesign of health care services across the Territory over the next decade. The draft Framework was released by the ACT Minister for Health and Wellbeing on 19 September 2017.
The Framework focuses on system level service planning that responds to changing demands, makes the best use of finite resources, and uses a robust evidence base including demand modelling, to inform future investment in health services and infrastructure development. It describes the case for change along with the principles to support a territory-wide, integrated, coordinated and person-centred service system. Ultimately what this means is a move towards a system in which people can access the right service, at the right time, in the right place, delivered by the right team, now and into the future.
