BNPHN 230209 191

Partnership protocols

Better health outcomes are achievable when primary healthcare and hospital services collaborate. Our joint protocol with the Metro North Health recognises this and formalises our collaborative working arrangement.

Joint Operational Group

The Joint Operational Group's purpose is to endorse, monitor and support strategic directions and initiatives to support the implementation of the Protocol between Metro North Health and Brisbane North PHN. The Committee is also responsible for reviewing monthly outcomes reports from all initiatives, which include financial status.

Joint board committee

A joint board committee of board members from the PHN and Metro North Health, also meet regularly to discuss the interface between primary and secondary care, further strengthening the partnership between organisations.
