The Health Service Partnership policy and guidelines (Guidelines) set the framework and expectations for how Health Service Partnerships operate.

These Guidelines supersede the Rural and Regional Health Partnership guidelines 2020 and cover both Health Service Partnerships and Local Area Health Partnerships. The Guidelines cover:

  • how Health Service Partnerships were established, including transitioning from clusters, and integrating Regional Area Health Partnerships
  • Health Service Partnership membership, structure, reporting, and decision making
  • how Health Service Partnerships should plan to demonstrate the impacts and outcomes of their work.
