Community Consultation on Primary Health and Mental Health Services
Published on 07 July 2021
This information is from the Western Victoria Primary Health Network. Please see their website for further information.
Western Victoria Primary Health Network (WVPHN) is inviting health professionals and community members to share their ideas to help guide how WVPHN designs, funds and coordinates services for health care across the region.
Among our key roles is to appoint health providers to deliver support throughout our region for a range of primary health care services. These include for mental health, chronic conditions management, and alcohol and other drugs support services. During July and August, we are seeking input from anyone who currently receives such services or has an interest in how services funded by WVPHN are delivered in the future.
During April and May this year, we met with community members and health professionals to gauge what they liked and what could be improved about current primary health and mental health support services we fund.
We want western Victorians to draw on the findings of that initial consultation to help us design services for the future.
We will use your input when preparing new tenders for delivering support services. We anticipate the updated services will be in place by late 2022.
We are consulting with health professionals and members of the community via a series of face-to-face and online workshops. If you are unable to attend a workshop, other consultation opportunities are available.
