The Department of Health delivers services through its eight geographical regions.
The Department's eight geographic regions play an important role as we strive to achieve the best health and well-being for all Victorians. Their local intelligence, relationships and delivery role provide a key interface for the work of the department, public health services, local government and other stakeholders.
Regions are responsible for:
- providing advice on the planning and development of programs and services to address changing needs
- monitoring the delivery and performance of most funded heath and aged care services
- working with stake holders to identify and implement service system improvements
- undertaking specified regulatory functions relating to the Supported Residential Services sector and environmental health.
