Description

Our vision is to achieve better health and active ageing for all Australians, and the Plan enables each one of us to align our work with the priorities and goals of the Department for this purpose. It is these goals and priorities which shape our work and provide the ‘line-of-sight’ for each of us as we work for the benefit of the Australian community.

We deliver on our vision through our people, and our values define how we do this and the standards of service we provide. Our people, and the values by which we work, are together our greatest assets. We also deliver on our vision through leading and partnering with others – particularly with other agencies, other governments, and community and other stakeholders. Collaboration is core to our way of doing business.

This triennium will bring new challenges as we work together with the states and territories to implement the Government’s health and hospital reforms. These reforms will bring the largest change to our health, hospitals and aged care system since the introduction of Medicare. The changes will have far reaching impact on the work we do across the Department, particularly in prevention, primary care, acute care, aged care, mental health and workforce. The challenges before the Department in implementing the Government’s health reform agenda are unprecedented. I have every confidence the Department will meet these challenges with the professionalism and readiness to adapt that has marked our history to date.
