Final Report

The Sustainable Health Review Final Report was published in April 2019.

The Final Report has eight Enduring Strategies and 30 Recommendations which seek to drive a cultural and behavioural shift across the health system. These Enduring Strategies were developed following extensive engagement and are informed by evidence and best practice, and were consistently reinforced in discussions with stakeholders in metropolitan and country areas.

Enduring Strategies and Recommendations

The recommendation statement articulates the intent or outcome of the recommendation. The priorities in implementation are actions or milestones that provide critical context and must be considered as part of implementation planning.

To achieve maximum benefit, each Recommendation endorsed by Government needs to be addressed as a whole.
