To deliver Australia’s Best Allied Health Care.


To deliver the highest level of health care to our patients and partners through enthusiastic, compassionate and informed clinicians who are dedicated to evidence based practice.



We will walk in the shoes of people we serve and those with whom we work. We celebrate our role in serving people and society in an area so vitally human as their health. We must be truly compassionate and genuinely understand, feel and identify with their needs. We actively listen to fully understand and genuinely empathise with people’s realities. We will then respond in service and advocacy for each individual, each group or community as a whole.


We will never compromise ethics. We will be known for living to the highest forms and standards of ethical behaviour. We will make honest commitments and consistently honour those commitments. We are accountable, reflective and open to feedback. We are true to ourselves, our professions, our consumers, our colleagues and our partners.


We value each person’s dignity. We value diversity and the rights of others. We respect the importance of quality and safety in our practice.


We are agile, we are dynamic, we embrace change, we are constantly striving to be better. We will learn from experiences of the past and use those insights to invent a better future to make the health care environment work and serve everyone more fairly, productively and consistently.
