EOI: Directors of the Board of EIS Health Limited

17 September 2019

EIS Health Ltd is seeking expressions of interest for four elected director positions on its Board of Directors.

EIS Health Ltd is a company limited by guarantee that auspices the Central and Eastern Sydney Primary Health Network (PHN). Central and Eastern Sydney Primary Health Network is one of thirty-one primary health networks established across Australia. PHNs have three main roles:

  • They commission health services to meet the identified and prioritised needs of people in their regions and address identified gaps in primary health care. This may include working with others in the community to plan and deliver innovative services that meet specific health needs.
  • Through practice support, they work closely with general practitioners (GPs) and other health professionals to build health workforce capacity and the delivery of high quality care.
  • They work collaboratively within their regions to integrate health services at the local level to create a better experience for patients, encourage better use of health resources, and eliminate service duplication.

The Australian Government has identified seven priority areas to guide the work of PHNs. These include mental health, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, population health, digital health, health workforce, aged care, and alcohol and other drugs.

EIS Health Ltd is governed by a board of directors selected on the basis of their professional skills, experience and personal attributes. The current board comprises eleven directors: eight elected and three appointed. In accordance with its constitution, four out of the eight elected directors of the EIS Health Ltd Board must retire prior to each AGM. Retiring directors are eligible to stand for re-election.

Expressions of interest are now sought for these four elected positions, with a closing date of 15 October 2019.
