DoH Strategic Priorities 2021-23

The Department of Health Strategic Priorities sets out the priorities, actions and enablers over the next two years to provide our strategic direction to ensure that Tasmanians receive the best possible health services.

While the delivery of health services is our core business, we will be focused on delivering a number of key priorities to help improve the health and wellbeing of our Tasmanian community.

There are six priority areas including:

  1. Continuing to respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic;
  2. Improving Access and Patient Flow across our Health System;
  3. Delivering care in clinically recommended times;
  4. Reforming the delivery of care in our community;
  5. Prioritising Mental Health and Wellbeing; and
  6. Building the Infrastructure for our Health Future.

These priorities are supported by three internal foundation areas, these include:

  1. Build and develop a sustainable and positive workforce we need now and for the future;
  2. Strengthen our governance, risk and financial management, performance and accountability; and
  3. Strengthen Clinical safety, quality, and regulatory oversight.
