  • Provide input

    Provide a unique perspective to the PHN Board to ensure decisions, investments, and innovations are patient centred, cost-effective locally relevant and aligned to local care experiences and expectations.

  • multiple groups

    We operate three Community Advisory Councils and three Clinical Councils, two in each of the three areas we servce. Most Councils meet in person, once every two months.

  • various industries

    PHN members come from a broad range of backgrounds. Councils are made up of clinicians, aged care workers, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander community members, those with a disability, academics and those with a lived experience of illness.

  • five year goals

    Every Council has a five year goal. This goal may focus on an area such as aged care, reducing avoidable falls, ‘at risk’ populations, using evidence-based practices to reach health targets and using innovative practical solutions to meet emerging areas of need.

Regional strategic collaboratives

    Regional Strategic Collaboratives work in the mental health, alcohol and other drug space, which is a priority area for the PHN.

  • various industries

    Councils are made up of mental health services providers, health professionals and community representatives with a lived experience.

  • Region wide

    There are three Collaborative groups, with one located in each area (Central Queensland, Wide Bay, and Sunshine Coast). The Collaboratives are a joint initiative between the PHN and the local Hospital and Health Service in each area, and contain a mix of representatives who can provide feedback on their community needs.

    The Collaboratives provide oversight, strategic advice and governance for service mapping for mental health and alcohol and other drugs services.
