Northern Australia health service delivery sector final report

Researchers working on a comprehensive assessment of health service delivery across Northern Australia will discuss their report outcomes and recommendations during a live webinar event.

The Northern Australia health service delivery situational analysis is the first pan-northern assessment of issues and priorities for health service delivery and was commissioned by the Cooperative Research Centre for Developing Northern Australia (CRCNA).

The eight-month study examined the sector’s current state-of-play and identified strategic long-term development opportunities across northern Queensland, the Northern Territory and northern Western Australia.
