Our Role as a Primary Health Network
Primary Health Networks (PHNs) are a federal government health initiative, established with the key objectives of increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of medical services for patients, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes and improving coordination of care to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place, at the right time. There are 31 PHNs across Australia.
In our role as the Western Sydney Primary Health Network we focus on addressing national and regional health priorities in consultation and partnership with local GPs, allied health professionals, consumers and community bodies and the broader health sector.
