NSW Health services

Health NSW aim to provide high quality, appropriate and safe health services for the community.

This program strongly emphasizes prevention, early intervention, rehabilitation and education, in addition to direct care. These services are vital in helping to create and maintain well being and good health, particularly in those who are least able to pay.

New South Wales public health services include public hospitals, community, family and children’s health centres, ambulance services and an extensive range of specialty services including mental health, dental, allied health, public health, Aboriginal health and multicultural health services.

Hospitals and Emergency Department locations and contact details can be found in the front section of many White Pages telephone directories.
