Clinical Council and Community Advisory Committee

Brisbane North PHN has finalised membership for the Clinical Council and Community Advisory Committee, which will engage local clinicians and the community in the planning processes of the PHN. 

Members of the Clinical Council and Community Advisory Committee bring together a wealth of experience across general practice, allied health, community health providers, hospital and health services, consumers and the community. 

Brisbane North PHN CEO Abbe Anderson said the Clinical Council and Community Advisory Committee will provide locally-relevant advice and strategic input to the Brisbane North PHN Board. 

“These groups will play a critical role in supporting the delivery of best practice clinical and community health care, which will ultimately improve health outcomes for our communities,” Ms Anderson said.

“We received expressions of interest from a diverse range of community members and clinical experts, and have appointed a skill-based mix to both the Clinical Council and Community Advisory Committee.”

The Clinical Council includes general practitioners, allied and mental health professionals along with acute care specialists and pharmacists, representing the full spectrum of health care services.

The Community Advisory Committee includes representatives with extensive experience across a range of community health services as well as representatives from populations with unmet health needs. 

These individuals will bring their varied health experiences and insights to inform improved service planning and delivery.

“Strategic level recommendations from these groups will include identifying the needs of local communities, prioritisation of these needs as well as shaping the planning and delivery of Brisbane North PHN’s programs and services through the co-design of appropriate and adaptive solutions,” Ms Anderson said.

The first meetings of the Clinical Council and Community Advisory Committee will take place on 5 November 2015.
