Call for Expressions of Interest to join our Clinical Councils

There is currently a vacancy for a GP member on our Hunter New England Rural Clinical Council. We are therefore calling for GPs within the primary health care sector who have an interest in joining this Council.

GP Registrars who intend to remain based in the area are also encouraged to apply.

The Hunter New England Rural Clinical Council broadly incorporates the Local Government Areas of: Liverpool Plains, Tamworth Regional, Walcha, Uralla, Armidale, Glen Innes Severn, Tenterfield, Inverell, Gwydir, Moree Plains, Narrabri and Gunnedah.

Applicants who sit outside the main centres of Tamworth, Armidale and Moree are particularly encouraged to apply.

To submit your expression of interest please complete the relevant online EOI form below.

What are the Clinical Councils?

Clinical Councils, as defined by the Department of Health, are an advisory body to the PHN Board that is GP-led and includes locally based representatives that reflect the key health care service providers of the area. The Clinical Council will advise the PHN on a range of clinical issues including patient care pathways and service/system improvements. You will have opportunities to provide input into service re-design, provide local context to make sure health services are relevant and accessible, and advocate for your community.

The Clinical Councils were established in 2016 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 initiative and Pitch Nights. The Clinical Councils are also provided the opportunity to raise primary health care issues to the PHN Board for further consideration.

There are three Clinical Councils covering the sub-regions of:

  • Central Coast
  • Hunter Metropolitan
  • Hunter New England Rural (1 x current vacancy)

What is the Commitment?

Members are required to attend quarterly meetings at their local PHN office (located in Erina, Tamworth and Newcastle) over 2½ hours in the evening from 6.30pm to 9.00pm and are remunerated at a flat rate.

HNE Rural members have the option of attending face to face in the Tamworth office or via videoconference.

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.
