The Bilateral Regional Health Forum was established in 2019 to support the health needs of people in rural, regional and remote NSW. It is an opportunity to discuss rural health issues and monitor progress on Commonwealth and NSW governments’ commitments to ensure a collaborative approach to improving regional health outcomes in NSW.
The Forum is jointly supported by The Hon. Brad Hazzard MP, NSW Minister for Health and Medical Research and The Hon. Mark Coulton MP, Commonwealth Minister for Regional Services, Decentralisation and Local Government.
The Forum includes representation from Commonwealth and NSW government, rural Local Health Districts, Primary Health Networks, and senior leaders in the NSW Ministry of Health and Commonwealth Department of Health. Other stakeholders will be invited as the topics of the meeting require.
The Forum will meet twice per year and a Joint Communique will be published following each meeting.
