WentWest Annual Review: Values in Practice

3,986 practice support visits, 240,415 My Health Record registrations, 258 events, 400 new HealthPathways – it was quite a year for WentWest and with the launch of this year’s Annual Review we have drawn together the many ways in which we are helping to drive change in health care across western Sydney.

This review highlights the many achievements that have been accomplished across the 2017/2018 year and recognises the extensive network of stakeholders and supporters, including the local community, primary care professionals and our many valued partners, who help make what we do possible.

The theme of this year’s review is Values in Practice. At WentWest we endeavour to integrate our five values – Respect, Leadership, Equity, Creativity and Excellence – into every aspect of our organisation. Whether it’s commissioning services, practice development, or our internal culture, this review demonstrates the many tangible ways we embody these values each and every day.

It was a year of great growth and innovation and we look forward to 2019 to continue our mission of working in partnership with our stakeholders to provide healthier communities, empowered individuals and a sustainable health care workforce and system.

You’re invited to have your say in the annual Needs Survey by completing one of two surveys:

These important surveys help guide our service planning and design – it is completely de-identified unless you choose otherwise. All contributors go into a draw to win one of five Fitbit Charge 2 wireless activity and sleep tracking wristbands.
