Expression of Interest - Central Coast Clinical Council - positions available
The PHN is currently seeking expressions of interest from primary health care clinicians working on the Central Coast to join our Central Coast Clinical Council.

You would form part of a GP-led Clinical Council comprised of GPs, Nurses and Allied Health providers who are passionate about primary health care.

As a Clinical Council member you would provide the PHN with clinical advise on a range of clinical issues. You will also have the opportunity to provide input into service re-design, provide local context to make sure health services are relevant and accessible, and advocate for your community.

To apply, please complete the Expression of Interest Form by no later than 23rd July 2021

Role of Clinical Councils
The Clinical Councils provides the Board of the Primary Health Network with locally relevant perspectives on clinical issues that impact on the unique needs of our local communities. There are three Clinical Councils who represent our Primary Health Network region:

  • Hunter New England Rural
  • Hunter Metro
  • Central Coast

Clinical Councils are GP-led and include members from other primary health care professions who assist us to develop local strategies to improve the operation of the health care system for patients. Membership of the Council includes participants from a cross-section of primary health and represents a variety of practice settings, experiences, expertise and disciplines. A Primary Health Network Board member representative also sits on each Council and is tasked with reporting recommendations and issues to the Board for consideration.

Since their establishment in 2016 councils have advised the PHN on a variety of topics such as the PHN’s Strategic Plan, regional health priorities, primary mental health services and more recently the primary care response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Clinical Councils are also provided the opportunity to raise primary health care issues to the PHN Board for further consideration.

What is the Commitment?
Members are required to attend quarterly meetings at their local PHN office (located in Erina), over 2½ hours in the evening from 6.30pm to 9.00pm and are remunerated at a flat rate.
Ongoing engagement occurs in between meetings through requests for participation in a range of targeted PHN consultations. Examples include input into service design development or assisting with the review of tender applications from service providers.
Membership tenure is three years.
