It’s not enough just to be able to treat patients when they present to hospital. We also want to break the cycle to poor health by tackling the growing prevalence of chronic illness in our community.

Many of the patients who present at our hospitals have complex healthcare needs as a result of chronic illness such as diabetes, kidney disease and heart disease.

Funding for our research programs is vital if we are to continue to address the burden of chronic disease in our community and improve health outcomes for our patients.
