Health and Arts in SWSLHD

Following the PAtH Forward: Partnering Arts to Health

You may be aware that the report of the NSW Ministerial Taskforce on Health and the Arts, the PAtH Forward: Partnering Arts to Health, was released in April 2016.

Following the report, the NSW Health and the Arts Framework was developed by the NSW Minister for Health in September, 2016. It called for ‘Local Health Districts and Networks documenting key strategies and actions to demonstrate how The Arts integrate and support health services to deliver and achieve patient or population health outcomes’.

The South Western Sydney Health and Arts Reference group has engaged a consultant, Victoria Keighery of SKOAP, to conduct a Strategic Planning process.  The brief includes deep and wide consultation with stakeholders who are engaged in health and the arts in the South Western Sydney.

The first part of the planning process is a Survey Questionnaire. The South Western Sydney Health and Arts Reference group encourages all colleagues within the LHD and associated networks to complete the survey and contribute to targeted, action-based strategic plan.

The Deadline for survey completion is 26th MAY 2017.
