Region

Murray PHN (Primary Health Network) has been in operation since 1 July 2015. The region spans from Mildura in the North West, to Woodend in the south, across to Seymour and up to Albury - an area of almost 100,000 square kilometres that is home to more than 644,000 people.

To service our catchment and its diverse population, Murray PHN has regional offices in Bendigo, Shepparton, Mildura and Albury, where we use local knowledge and local professionals to help optimise our primary care systems. In each of our four regions - Central Victoria, Goulburn Valley, North East and North West Victoria - we have established Community Advisory Councils to contribute to our strategic and operational planning.
