Strategic Issues for 2013-14 Implementing the new Service Framework for Health and Hospital Services in the NorthernTerritory. Developing appropriate service-wide strategies and responses to manage service demand and cost pressures within current resources using available evidence and best practice models of care, consistent with the position of other health systems nationwide. Delivering timely, accessible, safe and appropriate care. Implementing enhanced cardiac services that address outreach and rehabilitation service needs.
