About Us

Primary Health Tasmania is a non-government, not-for-profit organisation working to connect care and keep Tasmanians well and out of hospital.

We are one of 31 primary health networks (PHNs) established nationally on 1 July 2015 as part of the Australian Government’s Primary Health Networks Program.

The Australian Government has set the following objectives for PHNs nationally:

  • increase the efficiency and effectiveness of medical services for patients, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes; and
  • improve coordination of care to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place at the right time.

We have strong working relationships with a broad range of private, public and community sector organisations across primary, acute, aged and social care. This puts us in good stead in our push for a coordinated, primary care-focused health system delivering the right care in the right place at the right time by the right people.
