Welcome to the WQPHN 2021-2022 Annual Report Highlights. For a printable version of the report, please click here.

Engagement via our online Communication channels has continued to grow in 2021-2022, led in part by the ongoing presence of COVID-19, and our continued focus towards producing local content of our people in our regions and the use of video format.

Regular direct email communications such as the the quarterly “WQPHN Bush Telegraph” newsletter and Fortnightly "Message Stick" were the best performers, followed by the weekly COVID-19 update for primary health care clinicians.

The average open rate (how many recipients opened emails) and click rate (those who clicked on links within emails) have increased from the previous year. 

The WQPHN Facebook page as WQPHN's primary social media platform has again experienced exponential growth over the past year, with a 79% increase in engagement (people who “like”, comment on or share posts) and a 118% increase in reach (people who see our posts).

WQPHN Facebook page has seen an increase of 15% of people who 'follow' the page compared to the previous year. This equates to an additional 1,613 people.
