About us

About Eastern Melbourne PHN and our community

Eastern Melbourne PHN is a Primary Health Network funded by the Australian Government to improve the care and support people receive from health services.  

We work in partnership to improve the way services are connected and to ensure they are easy to access when people need them most. We work closely with health professionals, consumers and carers to scope the gaps, identify emerging community needs and purchase services that address these needs.  

We invest in a range of initiatives to make a difference in our priority areas including chronic disease, mental health, alcohol and other drugs, digital health, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, immunisation and general practice support.  

We work across all or part of the 12 local government areas (LGAs) below.

In December 2018, EMPHN achieved full certification to an international standard for ISO 9001 Quality Management System.
