Response to external clinical audits of residential aged care services

In 2018, Standards Wise was engaged by the State Government to undertake clinical audits of all residential aged care services operated by the then Country Health SA Local Health Network. The purpose of the audits was to provide a strong basis for regional LHNs to make improvements in our governance and operational strategies, as well as to improve our systems and processes for aged care.

For more information, and to access the final audits report, visit the response to external clinical audits of residential aged care services page.

Rural Support Service

The Rural Support Service (RSS) is a collaboration of the six regional LHNs, responsible for providing flexible, responsive and innovative services to support the regional LHNs to grow and thrive by:

  • providing system-wide capacity and capability across a range of specialised clinical and corporate functions
  • enabling, where sustainable and appropriate, the LHNs to develop local capacity and capability to become self-sufficient in the delivery of these functions.
