Central Queensland, Wide Bay, Sunshine Coast PHN uses service mapping, data collection and community feedback to identify health gaps in communities across our region. An example of a health gap may be a lack of access to a local GP, after hours service or allied health practitioner. The PHN will then tender for a best-fit service provider to meet the need.
- They commission cost-effective, sustainable services in our communities, including those in hard to reach places.
- Their Practice Support team works with local GPs to minimise wait times, maximise the services to patients and ease pressure on hospital emergency departments by reducing the number of avoidable admissions.
- They support and host professional development, education and training across the primary health care sector.
They understand effective, affordable and accessible primary health care services may only be achieved when community voices are heard and acted upon. They bring together health organisations, community members engaging with health services, community Elders and local hospitals to meet a unified goal: healthier, happier communities.
