Welcome to the Health Planning Unit

The Health Planning Unit key functions are:

  • Provide health service advice to inform the planning, design and purchasing of public health services in Tasmania.
  • Maintain and review the Tasmanian Role Delineation Framework (TRDF) and Clinical Services Profile (CSP).
  • Development and maintenance of a rolling five year "Statement of Planning Intent" (SoPI) to enable the Purchaser to articulate clearly its expectations and priorities, and set in place frameworks to indicate how services will be purchased in the future.
  • Provide guidance on the Service Plan and other instruments that guide the accountability and performance controls of the system.
  • Ensure the health needs of the population are understood through evidence based planning and advocate for the purchasing of safe and sustainable acute public health services in Tasmania.
  • Manage National Partnership Agreement: Improving Health Services in Tasmania Projects. These projects aim to improve Subacute Capability Building; deliver connected care for complex patients and include the trial of a new Alcohol and Drug Outreach support service.
