2019 Sydney Local Health District

Annual General Meeting

The focus of our team at Sydney Local Health District over 2018-2019 has been on experience.

The experience of our patients and their loved ones, the experience of our staff and the experience of the District as a leader in healthcare.

The Chair of the Board, The Hon Ron Phillips, AO and Chief Executive Dr Teresa Anderson, AM, joined our patients and their families, staff, consumers, volunteers, fundraisers, donors, NGOs and business partners at our Annual General Meeting.

During the AGM, we reflected on our achievements over the past 12 months in serving our patients, their families and the community.

It was also a time to reflect on the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for our District over the next year and beyond.

Patients shared their stories about how our staff have made a difference to their lives.

And, we showcased the District sharing the steps we're taking to be a sustainable healthcare provider delivered an insight into our District's first-class research and its impact on our patients and explored advances in technology that are driving big changes patient services and care.
