Gold Coast Primary Health Network

Members of the Month

Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) is an independent, not-for-profit company, dedicated to building one world-class health system for the Gold Coast. GCPHN is one of 31 Primary Health Networks established by the Australian Government, to identify the health needs of local communities. To improve primary health services, GCPHN not only designs solutions to meet the needs of residents and service issues but funds various organisations to provide health services across a wide range of areas. These areas include mental health, alcohol and other drugs, aged and palliative care, persistent pain, suicide prevention, cancer screening, immunisation, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. GCPHN plays an instrumental role in enhancing the performance of the health system, within these areas, for patients and their families.

To ensure a culture of continuous quality improvement, Gold Coast Primary Health Network is underpinned by a quality management system. This enables GCPHN to successfully adhere to their strategic goals:

  • Improving the coordination of patient care.
  • Increasing efficiency and effectiveness of medical services, especially for those at risk of poor health outcomes.
  • Engaging with stakeholders to improve the Gold Coast’s health system.
  • Consistently demonstrating organisational accountability.

GCPHN collaborates with public, private and nongovernmental organisations in the primary healthcare sector, and across the acute care sector, to improve the health and well-being of the Gold Coast community.
