Membership

Agencies have the opportunity to become members of the Lower Hume Primary Care Partnership to improve relationships, reduce duplication of services, address gaps in service provision and achieve better health and wellbeing outcomes for the community.

The Lower Hume Primary Care Partnership does this by seeking to implement appropriate change management strategies in partnership development, integrated health promotion, service coordination and integrated chronic disease management.

The Lower Hume Primary Care Partnership offers one membership category ‘General Membership’.

General membership includes “Core” organisations as specified in the DoH guidelines and/or services responsible for the delivery of primary care services, in the local government areas of Mitchell and Murrindindi.
