If you'd like to have your voice heard and are committed to attending quarterly meetings over the next two years, please apply today. 

Ian Gould has been a member of our Community Council for a year, and says members bring knowledge and experience that would not usually be easily available to the SEMPHN Board,  staff, mainstream health organisations or in published literature. He explains what the Community Council is and why he enjoys being a member. Read More

Join our Clinical Council

We are also looking for health professionals to join our Clinical Council. The Clinical Council’s role is to provide leadership and independent advice, from a health practitioner perspective, on commissioning, clinical programs and projects of SEMPHN.  The Council's clinical perspectives contribute to the quality, integrity, direction and success of SEMPHN’s programs.

We are specifically looking for those who work in primary health care, for example, general practice, nursing, allied health, medical specialties, pharmacy, aged care, and state-funded community health service provision. 

Clinical Council Chair, Dr Hung Nguyen, says the council offers  another means to serve our community at a higher level. "Those who want to lead and influence SEMPHN programs should consider nominating themselves.  If you enjoy learning from, and collaborating, in a diverse clinical group, the Clinical Council is for you."

Council appointments are for a two-year term, commencing June 2019.

The respective councils meet quarterly and provide recommendations and advice to the Board on local health needs and primary-based health care from a clinical and a community/consumer perspective.

Both councils provide valuable advice and recommendations to the PHN Board to ensure investments are locally relevant, and clinically appropriate, and are aligned to the needs and expectations of the local community. 

Completed application forms must be returned no later than COB 18 March 2019.
