About CESPHN Central and Eastern Sydney PHN
What are Primary health networks?
Primary health networks (PHNs) have been established with the key objectives of increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of medical services for individuals, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes. They also aim to improve coordination of care to ensure people receive the right care in the right place at the right time.
PHNs are not for profit, regionally based organisations which aim to strengthen primary care by redirecting frontline health services to improve health outcomes of the community.
Objective: Central and Eastern Sydney PHN works to improve access to high quality primary healthcare for older people, including residents of residential aged care facilities and older people living in the community.
Approximately 224,000 people, or 14 per cent of people in our region are aged 65 years and over. This number is predicted to increase a further 43% to 320,000 by 2031. To support the health needs of our older people, Central and Eastern Sydney PHN are providing a number of programs and initiatives focused on improving access to high quality primary healthcare.
