The NSW Health Performance Framework includes the performance expected of affected organisations to achieve the required levels of health improvement, service delivery and financial performance.
Eight LHDs cover the Sydney metropolitan region, and seven cover rural and regional NSW. In addition, two specialist networks will focus on Children's and Paediatric Services, and Forensic Mental Health. A third network will operate across the public health services provided by three Sydney facilities operated by St Vincent's Health: these include St Vincent's Hospital and the Sacred Heart Hospice at Darlinghurst and St Joseph’s at Auburn.

The second tranche of Chapters will be released shortly. The Compendium is a living document, and individual chapters will be updated to accommodate policy and legal changes as they occur
