WHAT IS AN MPS?
Multi-Purpose Services (MPS) are considered small rural health services which operate under the Small Rural Health Service (SRHS) model promoting integrated funding and accountability model across various service types.
The aim of the MPS program is to improve provision of services in small rural and remote areas by simplifying funding and accountability mechanisms. This is done by providing a more flexible, coordinated and cost-effective framework for service delivery.
The concept involves the pooling of State and Commonwealth program funds for health and aged care services. This allows the health service to reconfigure services to better meet local health needs and to provide staff with flexible work setting options across a range of services.
The amalgamation of funding for MPS’s Acute, Aged Care, Home And Community Care (HACC) and Community health services gives MPS agencies considerable flexibility in choosing service delivery mechanisms appropriate to local circumstances. Funding can be pooled then allocated to specific service types based on local community need.
Through leadership and innovation Robinvale District Health Services will strive to improve the health, wellbeing and strength of our communities.
To be accessible, build strong relationships, understand and meet people’s needs and use resources wisely.
