Who We Are

WQPHN Overview

Western Queensland PHN is one of seven Primary Health Networks (PHN) across Queensland, and 31 nationally funded by the Australian Government.

The Western Queensland PHN’s goal is to improve the integration of primary care services to create seamless health care in our shared communities across almost one million square kilometres of Western Queensland.

Key objectives:

  • increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of Health Services for patients, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes; and
  • improving coordination of care to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place at the right time

PHNs will be commissioners of services as opposed to deliverers. Working closely with all health service providers in the region the PHN identifies where there are gaps in primary health care, and commissioning local providers to cost-effectively provide those services.

Western Queensland PHN was formed as an independent not for profit company by the three Western Queensland Hospital and Health Services to create an entity to foster partnerships with all funders and providers with an aim to improve primary healthcare service delivery to the people of Western Queensland.  As of 27 September 2022, WQPHN has 15 Members.  If you are interested in becoming a member of the Western Queensland PHN please contact the Company Secretary at cosec@wqphn.com.au
