Are you passionate about primary health care? Express your interest now...

Hunter New England Central Coast PHN (Primary Health Network) is seeking applications from clinicians in the primary health care sector interested in joining our existing Hunter Metropolitan or Central Coast Clinical Councils.

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

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.

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.
