Get involved: ways to contribute to our work

North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network (NWMPHN) values the expertise, insights and experience of people working in and using the primary health care system in the region.

We also value community input from everyone in our region – see how you can get involved on this page.

How we engage with the health care sector

NWMPHN regularly consults with people working in the sector, including:

  • primary care providers (GPs, nurses, pharmacists and allied health providers)
  • aged care providers
  • other health care providers, including alcohol and other drug, mental health and suicide prevention workers, and medical specialists
  • practice managers, receptionists, and support staff
  • academics and others working in the primary, secondary and tertiary care sectors.

Opportunities to get involved include joining working groups, participating in consultations or tender panels, speaking at education sessions, providing advice on resource development, mentoring and more. Payment is available for some activities, in accordance with NWMPHN’s Stakeholder Reimbursement Policy (.pdf).
