ACT Health is a values-led Directorate. Our values guide our day-to-day actions, behaviours, decisions and communications to successfully deliver the best services to meet the needs of our community. They were developed by us, for us and are unique to our work. Canberra Hospital and Health Services provides acute, sub-acute, primary and community-based health services to the ACT and surrounding region. The key strategic priority for acute services is to deliver timely access to effective and safe hospital care services. The hospital delivers a full range of medical, surgical and obstetric services, including complex procedures in areas such as cardiac surgery, neurosurgery and neonatal intensive care. Strong links exist between hospital and community-based services, as many of the operational divisions deliver services across the continuum of care to ensure continuity of care for patients. The community based services of ACT Health include Early Childhood, Youth and Women’s Health; Dental Services, Rehabilitation and Community Care; Mental Health, Alcohol and Drug Services. In addition, Justice Health Services are provided within the Territory’s detention facilities. ACT Health is a partner in teaching with the Australian National University, the University of Canberra and the Australian Catholic University.

If necessary, patients are redirected to the most appropriate healthcare professional. Walk-in Centres are open seven days a week, early until late and no appointments are necessary. Under the broad direction of the Assistant Director of Nursing, the Nurse Practitioners are responsible for the management, planning and operational input to achieve quality patient care and service delivery outcomes within the Walk-in-Centres.
