A word from our CEO: Dianne Kitcher

As 2017 draws to a close, I would like to thank our partners, stakeholders and local health professionals for working with us towards our vision for a more coordinated regional health system which provides exceptional care, promotes healthy choices and supports resilient communities.

You can read more about our progress and results through our 2016/17 Report Card. This showcases our key achievements and highlights some of the work we have undertaken as part of our commissioning and partnerships.

Meanwhile, we continue to help raise awareness amongst local residents and holiday makers of the after hours medical options available within the region and prevent people presenting to emergency departments unnecessarily. More information can be found on our
website. Campaign materials have previously been provided to general practices and we would love your help in distributing the information to patients over the holiday season. If you require more materials please contact your Health Coordination Consultant.

Finally, our office will be closed from 5pm on Friday 22 December 2017 until Tuesday 2 January 2018, when normal business hours will resume.

Until then, on behalf of COORDINARE's Board and staff, I would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable end of year break.


Dianne Kitcher
