Strategic Plan

The strategic directions set out broad goals for the Woomelang & District Bush Nursing Centre, in order to carry out our mission and align with the Victorian Government's Rural and Regional Health Plan (VRRHP) 2012-2022. 

Our current Strategic Directions are due to expire in 2022. During 2018 there was consultation with members and the community, to develop a new Strategic Direction. In keeping with our policy of openness and promoting good communication, we include the Centre's Strategic Directions for 2018-2022. These Directions will guide the decisions and programs that the Centre works toward.

The plan has been developed with due consideration to the health priorities framework from the VRRHP and other more local and regional plans associated with the Grampians-Wimmera catchment.

WDBNC has a proud history of responding to community and social needs.

This Strategic Directions document has regular review and reflection built within it through the development and implementation of an annual Operation Plan, to ensure that we are responsive to emerging social trends and needs locally and nationally.

WDBNC looks forward to continuing to offer excellent, collaborative health services for the benefit of the local communities of Woomelang and District.
