Description

A Strategy for Planning Country Health Services in SA aims to achieve an integrated country health care system in which all health care facilities across country South Australia play an important role in supporting the health of their local communities. Country Health SA Hospital Inc is responsible for providing country public health services, and overseeing multiple campuses and hospital sites to deliver services and coordinate health care across country South Australia.

This document aims to build on the vision in South Australia’s Health Care Plan 2007-2016 and South Australia’s Strategic Plan setting out how to achieve an integrated
country health care system so that a greater range of services are available in the country, meaning fewer country residents need to travel to Adelaide for health care.

The Strategy for Planning Country Health Services in SA has been prepared to set out the broad policy commitments, priorities and key enablers. It incorporates:
> The deliberations of the Country Health Care Plan Taskforce, including the important planning principles and service
delineation framework
> Components received positively from South Australia’s Country Health Care Plan released in June 2008
> Feedback received during the public consultation period of the draft Strategy for Planning Country Health Services in SA.
