Commissioning Adelaide PHN - An Australian Government Initiative


The Adelaide PHN (APHN) receives funding from the Australian Government Department of Health to commission services which meet the health needs of the Adelaide metropolitan community.

The APHN Commissioning Governance Framework addresses the five phases of the Commissioning Cycle, click here to see the APHN Commissioning Cycle diagram.

Upcoming Opportunities

  • EOI for organisations to deliver the Lived Experience Telephone Support Service

    Adelaide PHN will shortly issue an Expression of Interest (EOI) for organisations to deliver the Lived Experience Telephone Support Service (LETSS).

    A component of the Adelaide PHN After Hours Primary Mental Health Service strategy, the LETSS will be a peer led telephone service providing information, navigation and support services in the sociable after-hours time period in order to reduce inappropriate attendances at emergency departments, be proactive in the de-escalation of mental health distress, as well as assist with access to mainstream in-hours mental health services.

    The EOI will include initial program guidelines and an opportunity for organisations to ask questions.

    Interested organisations are encouraged to compile their potential questions and check the Current Opportunities section of the Adelaide PHN website and register with Tenderlink here to create a provider profile and receive email alerts of commissioning opportunities.
