Alexandra District Health - Clinical Services Plan 2018 - 2023

The Alexandra District Health Clinical Services Plan 2018-2023 was launched at an Open Day Event for the health service on Saturday 18 August.

Alexandra District Health CEO, Debbie Rogers said: “The five-year Plan was developed in close consultation with the community, stakeholders and staff to identify health service needs.

“A total of 147 residents attended community sessions in Eildon, Marysville, Alexandra and Yea to help shape the future of our services. Plus 16 staff and 21 stakeholders had input into the planning. A total of 49 online surveys were also submitted.”

Ms Rogers said: “The Clinical Services Plan outlines the direction for health services in the Alexandra District Health catchment over the next five years. It identifies the scope of service delivery and informs future planning and development opportunities.”

“The Plan proposes a variety of new and improved services and partnerships. In addition, there is much that can be done in community education and health promotion.”

Alexandra District Health Board Chair Carole Staley said: “We are very proud of the modern facilities that our health service has to offer, and our highly skilled and capable staff.

“The Alexandra District Health Clinical Services Plan for 2018-2023 demonstrates our commitment to providing high quality services and to meeting the needs of our community both now and in the future.

“We encourage everyone to read the document and we thank the community and staff for their valuable input,” Ms Staley said.
