COVID-19 deadline extension to Joint Regional Plans

29 May 2020

In an email distributed to PHN CEOs on 7 May 2020, the Mental Health Supports Branch of the Commonwealth Department of Health indicated that they had received representations from a number of PHNs indicating they were unable to meet the June 2020 time frame to finalise their Joint Regional Plans.

Following consultation with the Mental Health Principal Committee, the Department is providing PHNs an extension of six months to 31 December 2020 to complete and publish their regional plans.

This approach will give PHNs, Local Hospital Networks (HSPs in WA) and their regional partners additional time to address the current COVID-19 crisis and allow time for sign off of the joint plan by stakeholders later in the year.
