St Vincent’s Melbourne Accessibility and Inclusion Action Plan has been developed with reference to the Victorian Disability Act 2006 and the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act 1992. St Vincent’s Accessibility and Inclusion Action Plan outlines strategies and identifies actions, in accordance with the requirements of the Acts and the Department of Health and Human Services’ (DHHS) policy in meeting the needs of patients, community and staff with disabilities.
St Vincent’s is very proud of the progress made in meeting the needs of patients, community and staff with disabilities. We remain committed to implementing the specific initiatives included in the 2015 – 2018 Accessibility and Inclusion Action Plan and will monitor progress and outcomes over the next three years. This will ensure the organisation continually improves its services and facilities with a view to delivering a truly accessible healthcare service for all the community.
This plan is in three sections:
Section 1 provides a profile of St Vincent’s and its core business.
Section 2 identifies the Action Plan’s objectives, how it was developed and the processes by which it will be implemented, communicated, monitored and evaluated.
Section 3 identifies specific, practical and achievable outcomes, and strategies St Vincent’s will implement and deliver. In addition, time frames will be clearly identified and responsibility and resources allocated to ensure implementation.
