The National Health Partnership Agreement (NPA) on Hospital and Health Workforce Reform – Schedule C: Subacute Care offers a significant opportunity for WA to strengthen and diversify such services. In effect, it will be instrumental in closing the gaps in the missing part of the continuum of care for older people - subacute care.

A key, central theme of these documents is the shift from the tertiary level hospital to the secondary/generalist hospital level with a strengthening of ambulatory care and community based services, and a strong rehabilitation therapy focus in many areas.

The Plan will provide increased services in the ambulatory care setting, move services to secondary hospital sites closer to where people live and will assist hospitals to be more efficient and sustainable.
