New Secretary for health and human services

Department of Health and Human Services patients and clients will benefit from organisational and service changes to be led by incoming Secretary Matthew Daly.

Mr Daly officially took up his key leadership role of DHHS Secretary this week.

Mr Daly comes to the Secretary’s position from the Clinical Support Division of the Southern New South Wales Health Service where he was Chief Operating Officer.

Before that he was Chief Executive of the Northern Sydney Central Health Service for over three years after holding several other senior NSW Health positions along the way.

Mr Daly takes over as head of DHHS at a time of great change with budget savings to be met and major national health reforms to be implemented this year.
