Date: 24 May 2017

On Friday 19 May, StudyNSW held the fourth seminar in the NSW Government series on public sector priorities and operations for Indonesian Australia Award students.

The seminar focused on the challenge facing Australia on improving health outcomes for people while maintaining a sustainable health system. May Guise and Aditi Bhide (NSW Health) provided an overview of service delivery, funding and governance structures of the NSW healthcare system. Their presentation also covered current reform priorities and innovation in how and where healthcare is being delivered.

Matt Schroder from DPC, introduced the guest speakers and presented an insight into how various levels of national and state government connect and work together to progress priorities and deliver projects to improve public services to people in NSW.

The group finished with an afternoon site visit to Royal Prince Alfred hospital, which is one of Australia’s premier tertiary referral hospitals and is recognised as a worldwide leader in healthcare excellence and innovation.
