Contents

Overview

In 2011, NSW Health established local health districts, speciality health networks and local health district boards to support devolving the management and governance of the State’s public healthcare services and empower local services. Local health districts and speciality health networks were made responsible for determining how to deliver healthcare services within the framework of a Service Agreement with the Ministry of Health. Our audit will examine the effectiveness of governance arrangements between the
Ministry and local health districts.
