Adelaide PHN has one Clinical Council with representatives from the northern, southern, and central regions of Adelaide.
Our Clinical Council comprise a mix of health professionals including GPs, allied health, primary health care nurses, hospital administration, pharmacists and Local Health Network (LHN) representatives.
The Clinical Council informs our annual health Needs Assessment of the Adelaide metropolitan region as well as help shape the services, programs and initiatives we commission or implement in response to those needs. Specifically, the Clinical Council assist us by confirming local health conditions and disease trends, identify workforce needs and capacity, provide valuable insight into the efficiency and feasibility of various service delivery models, and assist Adelaide PHN to build coordination and linkages between services.
