Eastern Melbourne PHN is a Primary Health Network funded by the Australian Government to improve the care and support people receive from health services.
- in partnership to improve the way services are connected and to ensure they are easy to access when people need them most
- 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
- general practice support.
We work across all or part of the 12 local government areas (LGAs) below.
