Tasmania's Health and Human Services Minister, Lara Giddings has outlined programs to ease bureaucratic procedures in the department.
This was part of a new reform package proposed by the minister in Launceston this morning to 200 of the health department's senior managers.
The main aim is to reduce the number of approvals needed for day-to-day decisions.
'We know that there have been problems within the bureaucratic process and we're addressing those,' she said.
'We want to ensure that those people who are working at the coal face, that are at the front-line with our clients can deliver answers to those people and that's what this is about - streamlining those bureaucratic structures.'
