South Western Sydney Local Health District

Local Health Districts have come about as a result of the NSW Government’s support for national health reform. NSW was the first state in Australia to implement these new locally managed health Districts.

Local decision-making is at the forefront of how the new organisation will function, led by a professional Health District Board and LHD Chief Executive.

The South Western Sydney Local Health District Board is chaired by Professor Phillip Harris AM and ten Board Members who bring a wealth of experience and local knowledge to the management of our LHD: Professor Phillip Harris AM (Chair) Associate Professor Mark Sheridan Mr John Gordon Ms Carolyn Burlew Professor Brad Frankum Mr Mark Johnson Ms Debbie Roberts Dr Jens Kilian Ms Christine Carriage Dr Kathryn Gibson Professor Margot Kearns The Health District Board and Chief Executive are responsible for:
