Far West Local Health District Healthcare Services Plan 2015-2020 (2015)

Far West Local Health District (FWLHD) engaged HealthConsult to assist in the development of their Healthcare Services Plan, which is intended to provide a strategic framework for the ongoing planning and development of healthcare services required by local communities across Far Western NSW over the next five years. The work involved the acquisition, analysis and presentation of a range of data about the Far Western NSW community including social determinants of health, risk factor behaviour, and chronic disease prevalence, as well and health care utilisation data around primary care and hospital services. It also involved alignment of possible health service development actions with the Board’s strategic priorities. The project commenced in September 2015 and was completed in November 2015.
