CESPHN recognises that engaging with stakeholders will achieve better outcomes than working in isolation. Our stakeholders include:

  • Consumers
  • GPs
  • Allied health professionals
  • Local health districts/ networks
  • Specialty health networks
  • Professional associations
  • Social services
  • Nongovernment and community-managed organisations
  • Other PHNs
  • Other health and human services.

We collaborate with a variety of stakeholders on projects and inform them of new developments and opportunities in primary care. 

Our Community and Clinical Councils play a central role in providing strategic advice to the Board on local clinical and community issues to improve and transform primary care.

CESPHN also fosters partnerships between primary and acute care services by supporting primary health representation on hospital committees.
