Murray Health Report

The Murray Health Report is published twice a year, to provide information to our communities on the health priorities that matter most to them. The first was launched in May 2021 and focuses on the mental health of our region.


Together Foundation Plan

Murray PHN in partnership with the four main regional hospitals have led this regional integration work around service planning and delivery, to improve the mental health, physical health and wellbeing of people with or at-risk of mental illness or suicide.


Report to the Community

2020 began with devastating bushfires in our north east communities, followed by the global pandemic of COVID-19, with its all-consuming impact on our lives and work. Our 2020 Report "a year like no other" offers insights into the experiences of our team in a very busy, very unusual year.


Needs Assessment

A key role of Murray PHN is to identify and analyse health and service needs in our region and prioritise activity to address those needs. Our fourth regional Needs Assessment was updated in November 2020, building on the evidence presented in our 2017/2018 Needs Assessment.


Activity Work Plans

The Commonwealth Department of Health has issued seven funding schedules to Murray PHN. Each funding schedule outlines the aim of funding, specific obligations to be delivered, and reporting accountabilities. While funding schedules apply over multiple years, Murray PHN is required to submit annual work plans against each schedule for each forward year, and report against progress at six-month and 12-month periods.


Strategic Plan

In recognition of the extreme and continuing demands of the pandemic, Murray PHN is extending our Strategic Plan by a year. We know how hard our people and our partners have worked throughout this period. That hard work doesn’t stop. But an additional year in our current strategic plan will help us deliver on our current commitments.


Primary Mental Health Services Guidelines

The Primary Mental Health Services Guidelines outline the scope, eligibility requirements, clinical governance obligations and workforce requirements specific to the provision of Murray PHN funded services.


Commissioning Framework

Murray PHN’s Commissioning Framework shows how we partner with consumers, carers and communities, as well as clinical and non-clinical health professionals and government organisations, to improve health outcomes for those in greatest need.


Foundation documents

PHNs have been established with the key objectives of increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of medical services for people, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes, and improving coordination of care to ensure people receive the right care in the right place at the right time.
