Our Strategy

Strategic Plan

The CEC Strategic Plan 2015-18 was developed following extensive internal and external stakeholder consultation and positions the CEC to provide leadership and support for patient safety and quality improvement in NSW Health into the future.

The Plan outlines the following four key focus areas for working strategically to improve safety and quality through a system-level approach:

  • Building system excellence together
  • Quality improvement capability and capacity
  • Knowledge-based system improvement
  • Organisational excellence

It is supported by internal performance measures and monitoring.

Performance Agreement

The principal purpose of the Performance Agreement is to clearly set out the service and performance expectations for the funding and other support provided to the Clinical Excellence Commission, to ensure the provision of safe, high quality, patient-centred healthcare services.

The Agreement articulates clear direction, responsibility and accountability across the NSW Health system for the delivery of NSW Government and NSW Health priorities. Additionally, it specifies the service delivery and performance requirements expected of the CEC that will be monitored in line with the NSW Health Performance Framework.

Through execution of the Agreement, the Secretary agrees to provide the funding and other support to the CEC as outlined in this Performance Agreement.
