Join our Community Advisory Committees

EOI Applications have now closed

Are you passionate about primary health care within your community?

We are looking for individuals who have a keen interest in improving the health of their communities and an understanding of primary care and the issues which affect health outcomes. Members are not required to have a health related or clinical background but need to demonstrate active community networks.

What does a Community Advisory Committee do?

The Community Advisory Committees provide the HNECC PHN Board with a community perspective on how best to improve health and wellness in their region; provide insight into identified health issues and present strategies and ideas that will lead to more effective and sustainable health outcomes for their local community.

The Community Advisory Committee were established in 2016/17 and advised the PHN on a variety of topics such as the PHN’s 2018-23 Strategic Plan, PHN’s health priorities, primary mental health services, healthy weight initiatives and Pitch Nights. The Community Advisory Committees have also played an important role in raising local health priorities to the PHN Board for further consideration.

There are three Community Advisory Committees covering the sub-regions of:

  • Central Coast (currently recruiting)
  • Hunter Metropolitan (currently recruiting)
  • Hunter New England Rural (currently recruiting)

What is the commitment?

Members are required to attend quarterly meetings (face-to-face) held during the day from 10am until 2pm at the local PHN offices (located in Erina, Tamworth and Newcastle) and are remunerated at a flat rate.

Members are expected to remain engaged between meetings and occasionally provide input out of session and/or represent the Committee on other PHN Review Panels. This may include providing input into service design development or assisting with the review of tender applications from service providers.
