These guidelines detail the requirements for Health Partnerships for 2020. They outline the department's expectations for how all Health Partnerships are required to operate. The guidelines focus on:

  • aligning the activities, deliverables and reporting with the Safer Care Victoria Clinical Governance Framework 2017 to provide state wide consistency and alignment with existing reporting processes;
  • clarifying the department's expectations regarding governance arrangements and decision making; and
  • how the Health Partnerships should demonstrate the impacts and outcomes of their work.

The guidelines also seek to embed Health Partnerships as a platform for future system reform and development, a role evident throughout the Statewide design, service and infrastructure plan for Victoria’s health system 2017 – 2037 (the Statewide Plan).
