Limiting the impact of chronic conditions across the region

Chronic conditions are the leading cause of illness, premature mortality, and health system utilisation in the South Eastern NSW region. We have an important role in facilitating, linking, and co-designing activities with health and social care partners to improve the prevention and management of chronic conditions.

    Enhancing the management of chronic conditions

    We support the delivery of a sustainable, integrated, whole-of-system response to chronic condition prevention and management.

    We work with primary care to create and promote new models of care and build the capacity of our region for self-management.

    Commissioned service partners

    Chronic conditions are long-term, complex, and can compromise quality of life. Improving care coordination for people ensures they receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time.

    We commission activities that reduce lifestyle risk factors, enhance the management of chronic conditions, and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of medical services for patients at risk of poor outcomes.
