  • WA Primary Health Alliance shapes, strengthens and sustains a health system that works for people. As part of the Australian Government’s Primary Health Network initiative, we operate across the state, improving access to health care closer to home for those at risk of poor health outcomes. We do this as the operator of the state’s three Primary Health Networks (PHNs) – Perth North, Perth South and Country WA. To find more information on PHNs, click here.

    WA Primary Health Alliance undertakes these actions in the context of primary health care with a focus on seven priority areas (Pillars) as identified by the Australian Government. These Pillars are mental health, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, population health, health workforce, digital health, aged care, and alcohol and other drugs.

     The Australian Government defines primary health care as:

    "the frontline of Australia’s health care system. It can be provided in the home or in community-based settings such as in general practices, other private practices, community health, local government, and non-government service settings for example, Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services.”

    Every three years, WA Primary Health Alliance as the operator of Primary Health Networks is required to complete a comprehensive Needs Assessment. The Needs Assessment identifies unmet health and healthcare needs for Western Australians which align to the seven pillars. The Needs Assessment identifies key priorities and uses these to guide and inform our investment across community-based treatment and support services across the state.

    Through Primary Health Exchange, we are asking committee members to complete the following survey and provide input on primary care issues and challenges. The Survey will take approximately 10 -15 minutes to complete and will be one point of reference along side other qualitative and quantitative data sets.
