Clinical council


The Clinical Council advises the Board on:

  • clinical issues that are unique to the needs of the region
  • opportunities to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of medical and health care services
  • population health planning
  • commissioning of programs and services that support local and national priorities.

We collaborate with a variety of stakeholders on projects and inform them of new developments and opportunities in primary care. 

The Clinical Council comprises health professionals, including a combination of those working within primary care (GPs, practice nurses, practice managers, allied health professionals) and others with strong experience in primary care.
