Speak Up Video Presentations

In this short video, NCPHN CEO Ms Julie Sturgess introduces the 2018 Community Local Health Needs Survey and presents information about the North Coast Primary Health Network, our region, and the organisation’s vision and priority areas.

This presentation was delivered in four locations during September 2018: Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour, Tweed Heads and Lismore.

Learn more about the Federal Government’s PHN Program, the North Coast PHN region, and how NCPHN plans to achieve its vision of “Healthy people in North Coast communities”.

In this video, we present the findings of the 2018 Community Local Health Needs Survey that was conducted in June 2018. The presentation shares data, analysis and interpretations of the findings relating to the respondents from four cohorts: Older people (aged 65 years and above); Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people; people with a mental health challenge; and people with a challenge with alcohol or drug use.

The presentation highlights issues around the following topics: access to primary health services; health professionals that were hard to see; challenges to accessing local health services, and the quality of local primary health care services. In conclusion, future directions are discussed and viewers can learn about how they can get involved with NCPHN.
