Rural and Regional Health Partnerships guidelines 2020

These guidelines detail the requirements for Health Partnerships for 2020. They outline the department's expectations for how all Health Partnerships are required to operate. The guidelines focus on:

  • aligning the activities, deliverables and reporting with the Safer Care Victoria Clinical Governance Framework 2017 to provide state wide consistency and alignment with existing reporting processes;
  • clarifying the department's expectations regarding governance arrangements and decision making; and
  • how the Health Partnerships should demonstrate the impacts and outcomes of their work.

The guidelines also seek to embed Health Partnerships as a platform for future system reform and development, a role evident throughout the Statewide design, service and infrastructure plan for Victoria’s health system 2017 – 2037 (the Statewide Plan).
