Our Health planning team analyses existing health service delivery arrangements and changing patterns of need, to make the most effective use of available and future resources.
What We Do
Our Primary Health Network works with health care providers across the Hunter, New England and Central Coast to deliver a range of primary health care services that meet identified needs and close service gaps for people living in our region.
We analyse and integrate information and data to support health planning and health service delivery in our region.
Our aims are to:
- Identify & address health needs in our communities
- Support and develop improved health care delivery in the primary care sector
- Develop and implement improved care pathways and models of care
- Commission health services to communities to close service gaps - we are not a service provider
