End of Life Care

The Greater Choice for at Home Palliative Care measure (GCfAHPC) provides funding for coordinating palliative care through PHNs. As being cared for and dying at home is most people’s preference, the initiative aims to help make that possible. A recent Palliative Care Needs Assessment identified the need for an End of Life Coordinator, a role that will be commissioned in a pilot program in the Hunter region.

Medicare Urgent Care Clinics

The Australian Government has commissioned the Primary Health Network to establish 58 Medicare Urgent Care Clinics (UCCs) across Australia, including 14 in NSW, over the next five years.

Across the Hunter New England and Central Coast PHN, Medicare UCCs will offer treatment for urgent but non-life threating illnesses and injuries requiring same day assessment for people who may otherwise have visited an emergency department.

Medicare UCCs will work hand in glove with local hospital systems and primary health care providers to ensure that people receive the right care and are referred to the right place for their needs.

Medicare Urgent Care Clinics now open:

  • Cessnock - 1/275 Vincent St, Cessnock
  • Tamworth - 279b Marius St, Tamworth
  • Peninsula - 297 West St, Umina Beach
