Each year, we review the health and primary care service needs specific to our region. This includes review of qualitative and quantitative data, and engaging and consulting with a number of partners, including community, to form an outlook of our region and work towards better health, better care and better systems.
Undergoing the process annually ensures timely identification and analysis of health and service needs across our region and informs how we prioritise and target activities to address those needs.
The Murray PHN Needs Assessment 2018-22 is organised under our 10 strategic health priorities: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, aged care, alcohol and other drugs, child health, chronic disease, digital health, general population health, general practice, health workforce and primary mental health care.
