“We, the Board and Executive Team of HSA NSW, would like to express our gratitude for Linéaire Projects’ outstanding guidance, facilitation and support in the development of our Operational Plan. Assisting us pro-bono, Linéaire Projects, led by Hediyeh Vahdat, undertook extensive consultation and collaborated with members of the HSA NSW Board and Executive, taking the time to understand our organisation and our specific challenges and opportunities. This has resulted in the development of a tailored Operational Plan that will guide us in the successful achievement of our strategic goals.  Linéaire Projects are highly passionate and professional, with extensive experience and detailed knowledge of all facets of the Health System. Through this process, we have developed a great partnership with Linéaire Projects and highly recommend them to other organisations wanting to undertake strategic and operational planning”.

The face of health care, including consumer expectations are continually changing resulting in a unique set of challenges. A platform where sharing ideas, discussing scenarios with like-minded professionals is essential for strategic growth and best practice. This has been one of the most advantageous aspects of our affiliation with HSA NSW. HSA NSW have also been pivotal in establishing a network between its members and the NSW Ministry of Health, in addition to other Pillar agencies. These channels of communication have been fundamental in navigating the health system to achieve positive outcomes. "
