The HeaDS UPP Tool

HeaDS UPP uses newly defined geographic catchments to reflect where people live and where they access health services, as well as where health practitioners and services are located. The HeaDS UPP Tool makes it easier to measure and analyse the health service needs of a community, the workforce required to meet that need, and identify the gaps in the current health workforce.

Additional information is available in the HeaDS UPP Tool Factsheet.
