South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN) works primarily on behalf of the Australian Government to improve local health care.
We want everyone in our community to be able to access the right care, in the right place, at the right time.
We are working to achieve this goal by improving access to existing services, commissioning new services to improve health outcomes, and encouraging GPs and others to innovate and further improve local health care.
Our six key priorities are mental health, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, population health, health workforce, digital health and aged care. We partner with general practitioners, other primary health care providers, hospitals and communities to ensure improved outcomes for patients. Please click here to view SEMPHN 2018 highlights.

South Eastern Melbourne PHN acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land our catchment covers, the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri people. We pay respect to them, their culture and their Elders past, present and future, and uphold their relationship to this land.
