Our work

Coordination, capacity building and commissioning are key aspects of our work

Our work

The work of Murray PHN, its Board and Executive, and all team members, is underpinned by five important organisational values – Leadership, Collaboration, Respect, Accountability and Innovation. These values are embedded in our three-year Strategic Plan, which guides and directs all of our activities.

We are committed to working to strengthen the capacity of rural health, encouraging place-based integration and investing in the sustainability of different primary healthcare models.

By increasing access to high-quality, culturally responsive and sustainable primary healthcare services, we support our communities to manage and improve their health and wellbeing, so that fewer people need to seek acute healthcare and more care can be provided closer to home.

The three key aspects of the work we are proud to do at Murray PHN are coordination, capacity building and commissioning – all aimed at supporting the vital work of primary healthcare services and clinicians in our region.

  • Coordination means we work with healthcare providers to enable the most effective use of their services and responsiveness to the needs of our communities.
  • Capacity building describes the way we work to connect and strengthen the system through our data, evidence, engagement, relationships, resourcing, and most importantly, our local knowledge.
  • Commissioning covers the capability we have developed to fund and support targeted primary healthcare services that can make a difference to the lives of our community – for patients and practitioners alike.

Examples of our work can be found in our most recent Report to the Community on the key documents webpage. For more information on PHNs, visit the Department of Health’s website
