Clinical services planning


The first stage in the development of a new hospital is clinical services planning. The Eurobodalla Clinical Services Plan (CSP) helps determine the requirements for a new hospital, confirm the role of the hospital within the District, the range of health care services provided, and how these services may be provided. The CSP outlines the current and projected health service needs of the Eurobodalla population up to 2031 and describes key infrastructure and future clinical services recommendations to best meet those needs.

Southern NSW Local Health District undertook comprehensive clinical services planning in 2018-2019 to determine the future range of health services required for the communities in the Eurobodalla Local Government Area. The process included significant stakeholder consultation to inform the planning. The CSP was submitted for review in 2019 and was endorsed by the NSW Ministry of Health in May 2020.

The CSP is not a blueprint, it is a plan that reflects the current and projected health service needs of a community at a point in time. It is one of the many sources of information that informs the future direction of a new hospital.
