Western NSW is a vibrant and diverse region, rich in community and culture. At Western NSW LHD, we recognise the challenge of delivering health care across the scale and diversity of the Western NSW region. We are committed to delivering world class health services to meet the needs of our communities into the future.

Our purpose is to deliver exceptional care to the people of Western NSW
Western NSW LHD works to a number of plans that guide our service delivery.
Our strategic plan sets an overall direction and priorities for the Western NSW LHD. It helps us focus our energy and resources to work toward common goals.
Our goals are supported by:
A strong, sustainable and happy workforce.
Well managed resources.
Data and analytics.
Infrastructure, technology and systems.
Productive partnership and effective communication.
Our strategic plan outlines how we will achieve our vision over the next 5 years, under our 4 goals:

One service across many places
Clinical Services Framework
Our Clinical Services Framework 2020-2025 (PDF 3.25MB) provides direction and priorities for our key clinical services for the next 5 years.
Facility clinical service plans
We have worked closely with our clinicians, staff, community, local government and partner organisations to develop Clinical Service Plans (CSPs) for our facilities. Each CSP considers how the unique health needs of our communities can be met into the future.
Reconciliation action plan
We are proud to have been the first District in NSW to commit to a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
Our vision for reconciliation is for all of us. We believe that non-Indigenous staff will lead the way in building relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, partner organisations, patients, families and carers to work collaboratively together to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
