How the nation manages peoples' health needs will become increasingly more important with a growing and ageing population.

In September's NSW budget, the state's health budget received a boost of over $900 million more than last year and a record health infrastructure budget of $4.7 billion over four years, a 50 per cent increase on the previous four years.

But, managing the population's health needs goes beyond just numbers. Not only will the demands on the health service increase, but the variety and methods of delivering diagnosis, administering treatment and care will also change in accordance with the changing needs of society.

What action is required to ensure NSW Health is a strong and resilient health system able to deliver excellent health outcomes?

CEDA is delighted to welcome The Hon Jillian Skinner MP, Minister for Health and Minister for Medical Research.

The Minister will address the NSW government's plans for achieving a "State of Health", including:

* State health plans as part of the National Health Reform
* eHealth NSW - new agency's role
* Distribution and effective use of resources
* Community and clinician engagement
* Infrastructure priorities to manage a growing populations
* Examining the benefits of greater investment in health eg. Medical research

This luncheon will provide a timely opportunity to hear from the Minister and examine the emerging issues and opportunities in healthcare reform.
