The Pitch

Enabling change, empowering staff, improving quality.

Sydney Local Health District embraces, encourages and supports a culture of innovation through its innovation challenge - The Pitch.

The Pitch empowers staff to 'pitch' their innovative idea - no matter how big or small - to improve our system, better the patient experience, enhancing delivery of healthcare and minimising waste.
The Pitch will:

  • Infuse a culture of innovation
  • Capture the hearts and minds of innovators across the District
  • Encourage both junior and senior staff to participate
  • Allow staff to act quickly to identify where to invest adequate resources
  • Follow a one page application process - removing application hurdles
  • Three to four presentations will be showcased each month
  • Competitors (presenters) will compete for resources and funding
  • Winning ideas and project teams will be well supported with coaching, mentoring and project management training from the District's finest clinicians and project managers
