The Yorke Peninsula Service Plan (PDF 677KB) was finalised and released to the community in January 2020. The Service Plan reflects the overarching future plan for the provision of health services in the central and lower Yorke Peninsula region. This plan was developed in collaboration with a range of stakeholders, including clinicians, nurses, the Yorke Peninsula Health Advisory Council, allied health staff, local Indigenous Australians and the public. We encourage the community to read the plan to inform themselves about the recent patterns of service delivery and the future health needs of the community.
