COPHE aims to increase the access of affordable and appropriate primary health care to poorly-served communities or client groups by supporting local community groups or non-government organisations to develop such services.
There is evidence that many groups within the community do not have adequate access to primary healthcare services. These include some geographical communities with low numbers of General Practitioners (GPs) as well as some population groups who find it hard to get the kind of care they need.
Welcome to this edition of our occasional newsletter. It includes updates on our work, some analysis of policy initiatives and some innovative ideas that PHNs could pursue.
COPHE can assist you in understanding how the primary health care system works while exploring innovative alternative models of primary health care delivery and funding. We can also assist you in analysing the sustainability of your current health practice.
We offer the opportunity for you to discuss your initial ideas with us, and receive some early advice over the phone as a free service.
