The HealthPathways Melbourne (HPM) program aims to improve health outcomes for our community by connecting consumers and clinicians through seamless web-based pathways of care. HPM is jointly operated by Eastern Melbourne and North Western Melbourne Primary Health Networks (PHNs). To ensure that the HPM program objectives are achieved, the role of the HPM Strategic Advisory Group is to:

  1. Advise the HPM Executive Group on high level strategy in relation to the HPM program;
  2. Manage strategic interventions with external stakeholders on behalf of the HPM program; and
  3. Provide strategic direction to operational activities.

The HPM Strategic Advisory Group meets bimonthly on Fridays from 8:30 – 10:30am. GP attendees will receive a sitting fee for the two-hour meeting, plus preparation time. A copy of the Terms of Reference for the HPM Strategic Advisory Group is available to download (.pdf, 417kb).

We invite GPs who are interested in joining the HPM Strategic Advisory Group to send a letter addressing the selection criteria, as well as a resume, to by COB Thursday, 4 October.
