Allied Health Strategy
In partnership with Allied Health Professionals, the PHN developed a regional specific Allied Health Strategy (AHS) for the Hunter, New England Central Coast.
We set up an Allied Health Reference Group (AHRG) who provide multidisciplinary input and advice to guide the implementation of the AHS.
We provide commissioned services such as the Priority Allied Health Services. We strengthen local availability of services such as allied health and mental health through commissioning activities designed to meet local needs.
We set up networks to improve care coordination across general practice, allied health, hospitals, pharmacies and specialists’ services.
We support Allied Health Practices to use their data to improve care for their patients.
We support Allied health with My Health Record set-up and implementation as well as with other digital health innovations such as specific allied health telehealth resources.

We design quality improvement initiatives and support the adoption of best practice care across areas including chronic disease, mental health and diabetes.
We offer, and connect allied health with education, training, and networking events.
