Brisbane North PHN is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee with a membership base of organisations whose objects align to those of the company.

The Company is primarily funded through the Australian Government Department of Health under the Primary Health Networks program. The two key objectives of this program are:

  • Increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of medical services for patients, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes
  • Improving coordination of care to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place at the right time.

A growing staff of more than ninety professionals, based at offices in Lutwyche and North Lakes, work with health and social service providers in our region to create a community where good health is available to all.

The 2016-17 year was one of reflection and renewal at the Brisbane North PHN; commissioning $23.5 million over two years to local agencies to deliver mental health, suicide alcohol and other drug treatment services, continuing to advocate the role of PHNs in the Aged Care sector, helping to improve the local health outcomes for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait population, continuing to support programs that improve the integration of health services, supporting vulnerable population groups, and supporting general practice to improve patient care. The 2017-18 year has continued to build on these activities. Our most current annual report can be viewed here.

The Company is governed by a skills-based board of seven directors and is now seeking expressions of interest for two director positions in the lead up to the election and appointment of directors at, and following, the company’s Annual General Meeting to be held on Wednesday 14 November 2018.
