Health Planning

One of the PHN's roles is to understand the healthcare needs of our community. We do this through analysis and planning, helping to identify and address service gaps.

The first stage in this process is the development of a Health Needs Assessment, which examines the health of our community, the services that are available and any gaps that exist.

The PHN develops our Health Needs Assessment this in consultation with key stakeholders, including our local Hospital and Health Service, clinicians, service providers, community and consumer representatives.
