Adelaide PHN commission Sonder to support two regional GP Councils – the Northern Region GP Council (NRGPC) and Southern Region GP Council (SRGPC). These councils provide a forum for GPs to address issues affecting general practice and delivery of effective care in the community as well as support GP representation, input and advocacy across the sector. 

More information – including current members, meeting bulletins, and contact details – can be found via Sonder’s website (or via the direct page links above).  

The Interdisciplinary Health Practitioner Network (IHPN) supports practitioners from a range of disciplines and provides a forum for building connections and relationships, providing peer support, and improving referral pathways. The IHPN has a focus on chronic conditions and supporting practitioners who are managing patients with multimorbid conditions. 

This network is a collaboration between the Mental Health Professionals’ Network (MHPN) and the Allied Health Professions of Australia (AHPA). Adelaide PHN supports the local Adelaide network and warmly encourages all practitioners to attend.
