Fairfield City Council and Health Promotion partnership
To help achieve better health for the residents of Fairfield and improve collaboration between SSWAHS and Fairfield City Council, Fairfield Hospital, Community Health Services SSWAHS entered into a 12-month Health Partnership in 2006. The partners were also keen to develop a model that could be replicated by other local councils and health services within the area health service.
Following the 2007 Health Partnership Annual Review - Outcomes and Recommendations April 2007 (PDF, 115KB), the Health Promotion Service replaced Fairfield Hospital as a partner and a new Service Level Agreement was signed from 2007 to 2010.
What we are doing
We have rolled out a range of strategies to address these two health issues in Fairfield.
Articles promoting physical activity and giving quit smoking tips are published monthly in local newspapers and the Fairfield City Council newsletter as well as being posted on Council’s website.
Partners and funding
The project is jointly funded by the Health Promotion Service, Community Health Services SSWAHS and Fairfield City Council.
