Chronic Disease Update - Tender Now Open

September 06, 2018

Chronic Disease Update

Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN are in the process of realigning Chronic Disease services funded by the PHN with the National Strategic Framework for Chronic Conditions. 

To ensure continuity of support for clients in our communities, existing contracts with Chronic Disease service providers have been extended until the 31st of December 2018. A re-commissioning cycle has commenced to identify and embed providers across the region from the 1st of January 2019. These providers will deliver services for people with chronic conditions replacing the former Rural Primary Health Services (RPHS) program funded by the PHN. The services will focus on: 

  • prevention;
  • providing efficient, effective and appropriate care to support people with chronic conditions to optimise quality of life; and 
  • targeting priority populations.
