Our commitment to Victoria

The Department of Health’s new Operational Plan for 2022-23 makes a clear commitment to all Victorians.

We want a future where Victorians are the healthiest people in the world. 

A Victoria where our children and people thrive, where our workplaces are productive and safe, and where our communities are more connected. 

We see it as our job to support Victorians to stay healthy and safe. And to deliver a world-class healthcare system that ensures every single Victorian can access safe, quality care that leads to better health outcomes for all. 

Our health and wellbeing, both physical and mental, has never been more important than it is right now. 

As a state, our ageing population is growing. Too many Victorians face health inequities and live with long-term ill health. The cost of care is rising and those who provide care are stretched like never before. 

The pandemic continues to challenge our health system. But it has also shown the importance of better-connected care in partnership with those being cared for. 

We know the challenges and we can see the opportunities to deliver the health care Victorians need now and in the future. 

We see a bright future ahead for our healthcare system. One that ensures that all Victorians can get the support they need at the right time, in the right place.  

Our Operational Plan for 2022-23 is short and to the point, to make clear what you can expect of us and how we want to work with you.
