Our leadership structures
We are continuing to explore the leadership structures for our facilities, services, and clinical areas.
Over the past 6 months, five facility and service consultation groups, and a clinical consultation group have reviewed and discussed options to improve our governance.
We now have proposed leadership structures for Westmead Hospital, Blacktown and Mount Druitt Hospital, Auburn Hospital, Drug Health Services, Oral Health Services, and the clinical networks – please click here for details.
Under the proposed leadership structures, the General Managers and Service Directors would continue to lead the operational management and delivery of healthcare within our facilities and services. The proposed clinical networks would provide strategic clinical leadership at the District level.
Thanks to everyone who attended a staff forum over the past couple of weeks to ask questions and find out more about how the proposed structures would work in their facility or service.
Your input is important to make sure that we get this right and that our leadership structures support our teams in doing what they do best and providing the best possible care to our patients.
Please send any comments to WSLHD-OfficeOfTheCE@health.nsw.gov.au by close of business on Friday 14 February.
