Call for greater collaboration between health services in Latrobe Covid-19 response
Latrobe Health Advocate, Jane Anderson has partnered with the Gippsland Primary Health Network to produce a report which details the impact of COVID-19 in the Latrobe Valley.
The report, COVID-19 Impact and Recovery in Latrobe, is designed to identify system gaps, consider broader opportunities for health system reform, and provide advice to the Victorian Government and local service organisations about the key commitments required to steer recovery in the Valley.
Among them, more support for people to access technology and data, greater collaboration between health services, a whole of government approach for bolstering digital infrastructure, patient-centred care, and community-led recovery.
To achieve these and other recommended commitments and inform a healthy and equitable COVID-19 recovery for Latrobe, the report suggests a collective approach between organisations and services needs to be established.
