New Primary Health Networks to deliver better local care

Australian patients are set to receive better access to frontline health services in their local area as part of the Abbott Government’s plans to improve the health of the nation, with the country’s new Primary Health Network (PHN) on track to begin rolling out from July 1.

Minister for Health Sussan Ley today announced the successful applicants to run PHNs across the country following a thorough tender process run at arm’s length by the Department of Health.

PHNs will replace Labor’s  Medicare Local system of 61 fragmented regions, which were found by an independent review to: deliver inconsistent health services; administration expenditure of up to 40 per cent of all costs; and lack transparency, with examples of taxpayers funds used to pay for staff parking tickets and gifts.
