Collaborating effectively, with a one system mindset.

Healthy organisation

Health priorities

While we have already achieved some positive health outcomes - including good rates of childhood immunisation coverage; high rates of attendance at a general practice or allied health service; and positive experiences reported by consumers with their local healthcare professional and PHN-funded services - there are still some areas of need which require our focus.

Health priorities for the region include improving perinatal health outcomes and childhood development; providing mental healthcare and suicide prevention; healthy aging at home; interventions to reduce the impact of chronic disease; and increasing the capacity and coordination of local health services.

Priority populations for our PHN include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, culturally and linguistical diverse communities, LGBTIQA+ community and people living with a disability
