The South Australian Government has released five regional implementation plans that map out the state’s long-term priorities for health services in regional and rural South Australia. The five plans outline the first three years of action on the recommendations of individual Health Advisory Councils across the state.


State Minister for Health and Ageing John Hill said each of the groups’ work would contribute to a customised health plan for each particular region.


“For some time now, Country Health SA has been working with local clinicians, community members and other interested parties, planning the most appropriate health services for each region,” Mr Hill said.


“Each of these plans outlines the first steps in achieving the long-term vision for health services in country South Australia and I understand the early action proposed will now be integrated into Country Health SA’s 2012-2013 Business Plan.”


All five plans are available in full at and there’s more information on the work of the Health Advisory Councils on the Country Health SA website
