Event overview

The 2013/14 NSW health budget is a record $17.9 billion, up by 5.2 per cent on the previous budget. The increase is designed to cover an extra 69,000 emergency department attendances, an additional 34,000 hospital admissions and elective surgery for an extra 3000 patients.

Recognising the importance of a healthy NSW, a sustainable universal healthcare system, the need for cost effective and accessible services is paramount to ensuring the continued success of NSW hospitals.

As shown by the recent Bureau of Health Information quarterly report - October to December 2013, NSW hospital performance has improved to record levels.

At CEDA's NSW Health Update, the Hon. Jillian Skinner MP will address the State Government's health priorities such health as an export and service delivery.

Meaningful policy reform requires an unapologetic look at where our health system is now and then applying the vision to create a world-class health system for future generations.

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA is currently delivering a digital program of public events, podcasts and virtual Trustee roundtable discussions; hybrid events with both a livestream and audience in attendance; and face-face events, where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face gatherings, CEDA is working closely with our hosts and venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers will strictly adhere to government guidelines for each state.In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.
