Population Health Planning Needs Assessment

Western Victoria PHN works with health service providers, users and communities to develop and improve access to the right primary health services, in the right place, at the right time.

As part of this process, we have conduct Population Health Planning Needs Assessments (Needs Assessments) to collect and collate information to identify systems and service development priorities, building on our previous work and knowledge. These assessments also inform Western Victoria PHN's regional planning, commissioning and integration opportunities.
