AWLHD- Change Impact Statement

AWLHD is proposing redesign of the after-hours crisis sexual assault service.

The proposal is being driven by the implementation of the NSW Violence Abuse & Neglect (VAN) integrated service model & Vic Strengthening Hospitals Response to Family Violence (SHRFV) initiatives.


AWLHD is Proposing to run a pilot of the new model for 3 months to evaluate the model efficacy including demand & resourcing needs.


The new model will likely see an increase in callbacks and demand for clinical escalation.
