Being a Healthy State

Our health system should provide the very best care to patients and put the wellbeing of South Australians first - at every stage of their lives.


We Believe

  • You are entitled to world-class, accessible and effective health care which supports your health and wellbeing
  • You should be empowered to make the best decisions for you and your family’s health, supported by health professionals
  • You need whole-of-person care which helps you live a healthy life and intervenes early to prevent or minimise ill-health and disability
  • Your community and local health professionals are best placed to design and deliver health services for your community, not head office bureaucrats
  • As a taxpayer, your health care needs to be efficient, effective and sustainable so that services are there when you need them


How we will achieve this together

  • 3.1 Protecting your health
  • 3.2 Delivering person-centred care
  • 3.3 Caring for mind and body
  • 3.4 Making health care accessible across the city and across the State
  • 3.5 Decentralising the control of health services
  • 3.6 Reducing waste and bureaucracy
