Policy Frameworks

The WA health system consists of the Department of Health, Health Service Providers and contracted health entities.

The overall management of the WA health system is the responsibility of the Director General as the System Manager. Health Service Providers are responsible for the delivery of health services to defined catchment areas. This governance arrangement is designed so that local health services can be responsive to the needs of the local community.

Under section 26 of the Health Services Act 2016 the Director General may issue binding policy frameworks to ensure a consistent approach to a range of core business functions.

The Director General has issued 20 binding policy frameworks. Each policy framework contains a suite of policies that establish required standards, to ensure that Western Australians experience the same level of high quality care, regardless of where they live, and which service they use.
