NSW Health is responsible for managing and funding health services in a wide range of settings, from multi-purpose health centres in remote communities to large metropolitan teaching hospitals
Non-critical illnesses and injuries drain valuable hospital resources. Choosing the right care for your condition means you and your loved ones get the best treatment. It also allows busy NSW Health services to help people who need it most.
Everyone seeking or receiving healthcare in NSW has the right to appropriate treatment for their condition, the best possible care at all times, to be treated with respect and to be able to talk to someone immediately about their concerns.
NSW Health is responsible for developing, managing and coordinating policy, strategy and program funding relating to mental health.

Health is an important issue in the community and NSW Health is committed to ensuring that it provides the best care possible to patients.
