South Western Sydney PHN is a not-for-profit health organisation dedicated to supporting general practitioners, practice nurses and other primary health providers to deliver the best possible care for their patients and improve access to quality local health care for the whole community.
Servicing seven local government areas of Bankstown, Fairfield, Liverpool, Campbelltown, Camden, Wollondilly and Wingecarribee, South Western Sydney PHN (SWSPHN) is one of 31 primary health networks across Australia aiming to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of health services delivered in our region.
We do this by working with local health professionals and our communities to understand the health care needs and service gaps of our region. Through planning and consultation we work at the system level to improve access to primary care services and health outcomes for patients, particularly those in our community at risk of poor health outcomes.
We play an important role in linking GPs, practice nurses, other primary health providers, hospitals and aged care, ensuring care is integrated and is shaped around the needs of the person receiving the care.
