Our PHN's commissioning strategy is an ongoing process of planning, purchasing and monitoring services to meet the needs of our communities.
Our Primary Health Network conducts a comprehensive health needs analysis for the Hunter, New England and Central Coast regions. Funding is then prioritised and allocated through a commissioning process to service providers to meet the identified needs.
Health service providers wishing to participate in the commissioning of services need to register as a supplier on Tenderlink. Once registered notifications will be forwarded of all future commissioning projects undertaken by us.
We have developed a set of guiding principles for the commissioning of health services to Aboriginal communities.
Commissioning is a new approach for many providers so we have prepared a series of webinars to explain the tendering process and help you to prepare a competitive tender response.
The toolkit gives service providers an understanding of the purpose and roles of Primary Health Networks, and specifically our PHN. By clearly articulating the role of the PHN and the service provider we will be able to work together more effectively to improve health outcomes for our communities.
