Mid North Coast Local Health District
The Mid North Coast Local Health District (MNCLHD) covers an area of 11,335 square kilometres extending from Port Macquarie Hastings Local Government Area in the south to Coffs Harbour Local Government Area in the north. The MNCLHD provides quality health care at public hospitals in Bellingen, Coffs Harbour, Dorrigo, Kempsey, Macksville, Port Macquarie and Wauchope.
There are 10 Community Health Centres in the District which are located at Bellingen, Camden Haven, Coffs Harbour, Dorrigo, Kempsey, Macksville, Port Macquarie, South West Rocks, Wauchope and Woolgoolga.
The Mid North Coast has one of the fastest growing and ageing populations in NSW. The MNCLHD provides a diverse range of services to a population of about 215,000 people.
The traditional custodians of the land covered by the MNCLHD are the Gumbaynggirr, Dunghutti, Birpai and Nganyaywana Nations.
The Mid North Coast Local Health District (MNCLHD) is recognised for innovation in healthcare delivery, research and communications. Our vision involves collaboration with existing and new partners – health care providers, academia and the non-health sector, working together to deliver an efficient and responsive health care system to our community.
The Mid North Coast Local Health District will host it’s third Health Innovation and Research Symposium on 16 – 17 August 2018. Through interactive workshops delegates will gain a greater understanding of how value based health care can be delivered in an innovative model and how patient reported measures can be adapted to maximise your patient’s outcomes and the health of the community. The aim is to provide a platform for information exchange through interdisciplinary and multi-sectoral collaboration.
The theme for this year’s Symposium is ‘Volume to Value’ and will provide an opportunity to explore the recent global shift to ‘value based healthcare’ and what this really means to patients, to health care providers, to health care systems and our communities.
Oral and ePoster presentations are being sought that showcase innovation and research projects, programs and services that complement the following areas:
- Improving the health of our population
- Partnering with providers, universities and research organisations
- Patient reported outcome measures and patient stories
- Minimising clinical variation
