Advance Care Planning
Partners in Planning promotes the understanding of Advance Care Planning and the creation of Advance Care Directives throughout South Eastern New South Wales, and provides resources designed to empower you to start the conversations and decision-making process.
Advance Care Planning is the process of ensuring your loved ones know what your plans are about your future health care. It can sometimes be difficult to talk about, but it’s a conversation that needs to happen.
What does Partners in Planning do?
Through a series of community events, Partners in Planning provides information and support to you, your family, friends, carers as well as medical and other professionals who are part of the process – to ensure the process of making and maintaining Advance Care Planning becomes a routine part of your healthcare.
How do I access Partners in Planning?
From August to December 2019, the Partners in Planning program is running events in Crookwell, Goulburn, Yass, Cooma, Batemans Bay, Queanbeyan and Bega. The events are open to anyone over the age of 18. You don’t need to book to attend, however booking will assist with catering. See a full list of events or book your spot.
A range of resources have been developed to support the process and to enable you to take the next step in advance care planning.

Marathon Health’s response to COVID-19
A message from our CEO
We are watching the COVID-19 situation develop in our communities and our thoughts are with impacted communities.
Following advice from the Australian Government about physical distancing, we will cease face to face appointments and outreach services, and transition what services we can to virtual servicing via video and phone.
These changes will be effective from Friday 20 March at 5pm, until further notice.
During this time, our two key aims have been to maintain important health services to isolated and vulnerable people, while keeping our staff and their families safe.
Our After Hours GP clinic and telephone services will continue to operate as normal. Please visit After Hours to find out more information.
What this means
- Our physical office locations will be temporarily closed; however, staff will be working from virtual locations, and can still be reached via email or mobile during regular business hours
- For specific services, you may able to speak to your regular staff contact from the comfort of your own home. Our team will be in contact with all clients to ensure the transition to telephone/video delivery is as seamless as possible
- For those services where we are unable to offer telephone/video facilities, one of our team will be in touch to discuss alternative arrangements and reschedule for a later date
We understand this may cause stress in an already uncertain time, and we will endeavour to communicate and provide alternative options wherever possible.
