Aged health services model in NSW
The purpose of this document is to develop an ideal model for NSW Health to deliver aged health services, with the aim of improving the care of older people.
To understand what is required to transition services to an optimal state, it is important to understand the current configuration of NSW Health aged health services. To this purpose, three different service models are presented that reflect different aspects of aged health services in NSW.
The service models in this document are:
- intended as a practical tool to demonstrate the current and ideal aged health services requirements for care of the older person in NSW
- accompanied by a decision support tool to assist in identifying the impact on patient care, service and the aged health system, if services are transferred, reduced, changed or enhanced.
