Health Planning Units

Health Planning Units are a key feature of the AusHFG and provide detailed information regarding common clinical departments or services in hospitals and other healthcare settings. 

Each Health Planning Unit contains information relating to a service description, related policies and guidelines, operational planning and design considerations. Each Health Planning Unit also includes a detailed schedule of accommodation and functional relationship diagram. 

Each Health Planning Unit is reviewed on a three to five yearly cycle to ensure changes in clinical, technical or operational requirements are considered.

Information on updates to Health Planning Units is published on the News & Updates section of the website. Users are also invited to subscribe for alerts to all AusHFG updates.
