Partners for Change Program

An opportunity to participate in life changing partnerships.

By joining forces, we can drive meaningful change, increase access to primary health care services, and improve the wellbeing of communities across our region. Working with partners from all sectors, the PHN leverages and scales programs to increase equity of access to health care services across the Hunter New England and Central Coast regions.

Partnering with the PHN provides an opportunity to make a positive impact on health systems and outcomes, fulfill social responsibilities, foster innovation, and engage with community.

Whilst the PHN provides funding for directed primary care health services predominantly via government investment, our scope is much broader, offering great opportunities through partnership models such as co-funding, pilot programs and collaboration agreements to join us as we provide funding to test and trial innovative models of care that will contribute to long-lasting change in the primary health care system.

The PHN invites partners from all sectors including corporates, philanthropic and community organisations to work with us to:

  • Enhance primary health care services accessibility.
  • Reduce health disparities.
  • Collaborate on innovative solutions.
  • Engage with community.

Impact areas ready for partnership support include:

  • Domestic Family and Sexual Violence.
  • First Nations Health.
  • Alcohol and other drug initiatives.
  • Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.
  • Care Navigation programs including refugee and veterans' support.
  • Older Persons including dementia and palliative care projects.
  • Homelessness support.
  • Cultural and Linguistically Diverse communities.
  • Emergency and disaster response programs.

The PHN also has a vast range of quality events and education programs that provide sponsorship opportunities for organisations wishing to engage with a broad range of health professionals.
