Primary Care Quality and Innovation Awards 2022

The PHN is pleased to congratulate the winners of the Primary Care Quality and Innovation Awards 2022.

Thank you to everyone who joined us in celebrating the region’s primary care providers, our finalists and Award winners for making the evening a huge success.

The Awards brought together a diverse range of primary care providers, professionals, and practices from across the sector for a gala event on Friday 24 June at NEX, the Newcastle Exhibition and Convention Centre.

From general practices and their after-hour care services to Rural Primary Health Services, mental health services, allied health providers, Aboriginal medical services, and residential aged care facilities, it was a night of celebrating innovation in healthcare.

Thank you to our First Nations artists for putting on such a magnificent art exhibition. It was a privilege to be able to support and showcase First Nations art as part of the Awards this year.

A special thank you to our Sponsors EBOS Healthcare and Honeysuckle Health. We could not have put on such a wonderful evening without your support.

And lastly, thank you to our commissioned services who showcased some of the amazing programs running in our region.

We look forward to celebrating the primary care providers across the region once again in 2023. Keep an eye out for updates on submissions open for next year!
