“The coming years bring with them a curious mix of optimism, and hope,” writes CEO Christopher Carter, introducing North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network’s (NWMPHN’s) Annual Report for 2023.
The report, published this week, provides a necessarily brief overview of the organisation’s activities across a very busy year.
Overall, the numbers tell a story of NWMPHN’s drive to help build a primary health system that is guided by values of equity, respect, collaboration and innovation. The organisation strives for better care, every day in every way.
Among the achievements for the financial year:
- 1,600 community participants engaged in our Health Needs Assessment 2022–25
- 43,606 CAREinMIND™ counselling sessions were delivered
- 6,000 counselling sessions were delivered to more than 1000 aged care home residents
- 30,000+ patients with urgent conditions were seen in 8 priority primary care centres
- 44 general practices participated in structured quality improvement projects
- 268 asthma care providers attended our Improving Childhood Asthma Management communities of practice
- 88 local services were listed on our new Dementia Directory
- 1,049,247 HealthPathways Melbourne pages were viewed by health professionals
- 83 residential aged care homes took part in our physical activity program
- 32,200 at-risk patients received a vaccination or GP consult through our winter planning grant scheme
And that’s just a sample!
In line with its commitments to innovation and sustainability, this year NWMPHN opted not to produce a printed annual report. Instead, it teamed up with Melbourne web designers Plural to produce a purely online publication, containing videos and animations as well as text.
