The Futures Program - service improvement ideas

The South Metropolitan Health Service has begun a three year program designed to improve services.

There are five streams to the work.

This guide and associated pages points to some of the published literature available that may inform deliberations.

If you have specific questions that require more targeted sources, please request a literature search.

This is a link to the HealthPoint intranet page on the program.


In the East Metropolitan Health Service these issues are all relevant to the Ideas Platform announced for the Royal Perth Bentley Group and no doubt for other parts of EMHS. [intranet link]
