Health service directives

The Hospital and Health Boards Act 2011 (Section 47) authorises the Chief Executive of the Department of Health to issue health service directives to Hospital and Health Services. Health service directives may be issued for the purposes of:

  • promoting service coordination and integration
  • optimising effective and efficient use of resources
  • setting standards and policies for safe and high quality service delivery
  • ensuring consistent approaches to service delivery
  • supporting the application of State policies, legislation and agreements entered into by the State

Health service directives are brief and focussed on specific requirements of, or outcomes to be achieved by, Hospital and Health Services.
