How do I know whether I go to SARA or use a local form or service?

If you work for NSW Health, SARA is a great place to start your search. If you log on and find the form you need within SARA, you can submit it right then and there. If not, this may be something you need to source from a local health entity team or intranet. But, in partnership with your health entity, eHealth NSW will aim to keep adding more online forms, services and functions to SARA all the time, so check back in regularly.

Where can you access SARA?
