Royal International Convention Centre

Now in its fifth year, the annual Metro North Health Forum hosted by Metro North Hospital and Health Service and Brisbane North PHN will be held on 19 June 2018 at the Royal International Convention Centre in Bowen Hills.

Focused on "Connecting for the future", the forum will build on our history of partnership. It will connect and engage providers and consumers in driving a reform agenda across; healthcare for older people, mental health, alcohol and other drugs and the interface between hospital and primary care.

It will highlight a range of initiatives underway between Metro North Hospital and Health Service and Brisbane North PHN that aim to connect and coordinate healthcare.

The forum is a well-regarded networking opportunity, bringing together people working in health and community services, health consumers and community groups.

In 2018, the forum will also feature an exhibition of local for-profit and not-for-profit health related organisations.
