Health Justice Partnerships are arrangements that see health and legal professionals partner together to assist people who are experiencing disadvantage. They embody the holistic, no-wrong-door approach the NSW Government has committed to under Living Well, and since 2015 the Commission has co-chaired the NSW Health Justice Partnership Community of Practice to support and grow HJPs in NSW. In 2016 the Commission developed a position paper that explains in depth what an HJP is, how they apply in NSW and the benefits they deliver for clients and service providers. In 2017 the Commission partnered with Legal Aid NSW to host a forum for lawyers and health professionals on how they can achieve a person-centred partnership.
