Primary Health Network Partnership Protocol

The Primary Health Network Partnership Protocol (PDF, 3.36 MB) recognises the strategic links between Metro South Health and the Brisbane South PHN. It forms the basis by which we will work towards the common objective of achieving the best possible health outcomes for our community. Our common aims include:

  • improved access to the most appropriate health services at the right time and in the right place
  • a focus on reducing avoidable admissions / readmissions and emergency department presentations
  • facilitating a more sustainable local health care system characterised by innovative care pathways and payment models
  • improving coordination, efficiency and effectiveness of and between health and relevant community services
  • a focus on the needs of vulnerable, at-risk and high-needs populations
  • improve health literacy to enable better use of the healthcare system and support people to invest in a healthy lifestyle.
