Health is the most important aspect of our lives. It’s the foundation of everything else we do.
So, what a privilege it is to be able to contribute to improving the health of every single Victorian. To invest in facilities, research and access so that Victorians all over the state are empowered to make informed decisions that improve their health and wellbeing. To partner with Aboriginal Victorians on the path to self-determination. To improve access to mental health services. To turn the spotlight on women’s health. And so much more.
Our work is fuelled by a shared passion to serve the community of today and create a better future for those who will come after us. We face unprecedented challenges at individual and global levels. From waiting lists to climate change, the world has never been more complex. And yet we also have more resources, collective wisdom and technology than at any other time in history.
Most importantly, though, we have the people we need to deliver our ambitious goals. Victorian health and wellbeing workers are among the best in the world. Expertly trained, fiercely committed and genuinely compassionate. They are our greatest asset. They deserve more than just our praise, and we’ll invest heavily in their training, wellbeing and career progression.
This strategic plan harnesses the energy, innovation, and passion of our people. It is a plan that will deliver the best health, wellbeing and care outcomes for communities across the state. It is the plan Victoria deserves.
And you and I get to be part of it.
