Health Service Strategy (2015-2020)

The Metro North Health Strategy 2015-2020 was developed to address the challenges we share with other health services, including the increasing demand for services, changing care needs, pressure on existing infrastructure and the need to maintain a skilled and committed workforce. After significant progress on the original prioritised strategies in the first two years, the Health Service Strategy was refreshed in 2017.

The Strategy provides an overview of the health needs of our population to 2020 and examines the factors that are likely to influence the design and delivery of healthcare services to identify challenges and opportunities. It also presents our focus areas, developed after extensive consultation with clinicians and community partners and outlines the strategies to address them.
