The State Government established 10 Local Health Networks (LHNs), each with its own Governing Board, which commenced operation on 1 July 2019.
From this date, six new regional LHNs replaced Country Health SA LHN.
In addition, the Department for Health and Wellbeing (the Department) is taking on a revised role, complementing and supporting the LHNs through high-level system direction and performance management, as well as its government departmental roles to support the Minister and Chief Executive in exercising their responsibilities.
Two other key Government initiatives are also being progressed, to establish Wellbeing SA and a Commission on Excellence and Innovation in Health.
