Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD) covers an area in north eastern NSW extending from Tweed Heads in the north to Tabulam and Urbenville in the west and to Nymboida and Grafton in the south, an area of 20,732 square kilometres.
In 2011 the estimated population was 288,241, and over the decade to 2021, the overall population of the NNSWLHD is projected to increase by 8.9% (or 9%) and by 34.7% (or 35%) for the population aged 65 years and over.
The District delivers a broad range of health services in state-of-the-art facilities, with access to general and specialist services. Staff are connected to best-practice medical care throughout Australia thanks to a growing network of training opportunities and relationships with local and metropolitan tertiary education providers.
NNSWLHD is undertaking major capital projects at several facilities, which will support staff and clinicians in providing excellent care to the District's communities well into the future. Continued developments in Information Communication Technologies and Integrated Care have also resulted in improved patient outcomes and hospital services.
