The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) develops and delivers policies, programs and services that support and enhance the wellbeing of all Victorians. The Department takes a broad view of the causes of ill-health, the drivers of good health, the social and economic context in which people live, and of the incidence and experience of vulnerability.
Reporting directly to the Deputy Secretary, Health and Wellbeing, the Executive Director, Health Service Policy and Commissioning (Executive Director) is a senior statewide leadership role, which in partnership with a team of directors and group of branches, will successfully oversee the policy, planning, and performance of health services in Victoria. The role in many ways is the Departmental “System Chief Operating Officer” for Health and Wellbeing in Victoria.
More specifically the role oversees the aforementioned set of functions across the State’s public and private hospitals, day procedure centres, emergency and non-emergency patient transport services, residential aged care services, mental health services, and other non-government health care providers. Additionally, the Executive Director will support best practice approaches to clinical care through the Victorian Cancer Agency, health and medical research, international health engagement, and policy development.
The Executive Director also works with the newly formed Safer Care Victoria and the Victorian Agency for Health Information to ensure safe, quality health care and to disseminate innovation and improvement efforts across the health system.
