The National Primary Health Network (PHNs) Cooperative (The Cooperative) is currently developing a National PHN Allied Health in Primary Care Engagement Framework (The Framework). The Cooperative http://www.phncooperative.org.au/ is a collective function of which all 31 PHNs in Australia are members. The Cooperative has endorsed the development of the Framework to help define the scope and role of PHN engagement with the allied health sector. This decision is in response to an increased engagement with Allied Health clinicians, providers and stakeholders that arose during COVID-19, when the need for engagement guidelines became evident.
The Cooperative is seeking to better understand the needs of allied health professionals to enable PHNs to work with and support the allied health sector effectively. Please share your thoughts and contribute to this important work by completing and/or sharing this short survey https://survey.pwc.com/jfe/form/SV_72vnanvRdHTBxsO.
The survey is for allied health professionals (AHPs) and the associated workforce, including Peak bodies. We are eager to hear a broad range of perspectives from across the sector, and encourage you to share the survey link with your fellow allied health professionals, staff, members and/or network. Your feedback will be used to inform the development of the Framework, and shape PHN engagement with allied health stakeholders going forward.
The survey will be open until March 7th, so please ensure to submit your response by this date.
If you have any questions or require clarification regarding the development of the Framework, feel free to contact Jo Coutts, Integrated Health Manager at HNECC PHN at firstname.lastname@example.org:email@example.com. For any issues accessing the survey specifically, please contact Shiraali Patel from PwC at firstname.lastname@example.org:email@example.com.
