Attendees of a Local Health Forum

During March and April, SWSPHN held a series of Local Health Forums throughout the region.

Community members, health professionals and community service providers were invited to come along to a forum to discuss how to improve the health of our region and ensure we attract and keep quality GPs, and other primary health professionals. 

The feedback from these forums will inform the SWSPHN health needs assessment, which explores priorities, service needs, and gaps within our region. It will also contribute to ongoing strategic planning for our Primary Care Workforce team. 

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to an outstanding series of forums.

Below is a report which outlines the key findings.

SWSPHN is currently planning the next Local Health Forums which will focus on palliative care and the importance of advance care planning. We look forward to hosting these forums in August and September 2024. Dates to come shortly.
