Murray PHN is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health to commission primary health care services in its region. Murray PHN supports people living in the region to receive effective care, where and when they need it.
With a large rural and regional area covering almost 100,000 square kilometres, Murray PHN has teams located in Bendigo, Shepparton, Mildura and Albury/Wodonga.
Murray PHN addresses the health needs of its communities by engaging key partners to deliver targeted actions that:
• increase the efficiency and effectiveness of health services for patients, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes; and
• improve the coordination of care to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place at the right time.
Murray PHN works to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, cancer screening rates, chronic illness complications, mental health, workforce sustainability and digital health connectedness in line with national targets.
