New arrangements for governance of Kids and Families

From 1 November 2015, NSW Kids and Families became the Office of Kids and Families, reporting through the Strategy and Resources Division of the Ministry of Health. The Office of Kids and Families will continue to champion the health interests of children and young people whether they are at home, in the community or in or out of hospital. This includes health services for babies, children, adolescents, mothers, parents and families.

The continual improvement of the quality and safety of health care provided in hospital and community settings is a common goal of patients, the community and health care professionals. These changes will integrate a range of functions within the Ministry and build upon the achievements of NSW Kids and Families in promoting the health and wellbeing of children, young people and families.
