NSW Health is developing the next Regional Health Plan for 2022 to 2032. The plan will be a long-term strategy to meet the health needs of regional, rural, and remote communities.
NSW Health are consulting with an extensive range of health staff and external stakeholders from regional, rural and remote communities. In this survey ‘regional NSW’ will be used to mean regional, rural and remote communities. The wording ‘Regional Health’ considers the vast and vibrant nature of the communities in the regions of NSW.
The themes in this survey are developed out of issues that arose during the NSW Parliament’s Upper House inquiry into health outcomes and access to health and hospital services in regional, rural and remote NSW and the future directions in the Final Progress Review of the previous Plan, Rural Health Plan: Towards 2021. The themes also align with the roadmap for NSW Health over the coming decade, Future Health.
NSW Health want to hear your ideas so that we can develop solutions to these issues as part of the new plan.

Your responses to this survey will only be used to inform the Regional Health Plan. Unless NSW Health are legally required to, raw data from this survey won’t be released to anyone outside the project team (which includes representatives of the Ministry of Health and Bendelta) and will be analysed and reported at the group level only.
NSW Health also ask questions relating to demographics, such as your age range and workplace, which helps us report on the survey sample. If you provide written responses, NSW Health may use de-identified quotes to represent or highlight particular themes.
