WSLHD Health Services Plan to 2026

Graeme Loy, the new Chief Executive (Acting) of the Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) launched the WSLHD Health Services Plan at their WSLHD Health Forum and Annual Public on 31 October. The plan is about making sure the WSLHD can meet the health care demand over the next few years, given the population growth, ageing population and increase in chronic and complex illnesses. It is also about providing care in the best place for patients – whether that’s at home, in the community or at hospital.
