Primary care providers are inherently involved and play an important role in the disaster recovery of their community.
Please note: Follow the advice of first responding lead agencies at all times.
The PHN is actively supporting primary care providers who recover from the effect of disasters and emergencies by:
- Rolling out grants to assist providers and / or communities in their disaster recovery (subject to availability)
- Supporting the mental health and wellbeing of providers and their staff and offering support resources for patients recovering from a disaster including mental health resources that help people navigating through challenging times in disaster recovery.
