About the organisation
Gippsland PHN’s vision is for a measurably healthier Gippsland. We recognise we must think beyond health to achieve this vision and have an impact at a population health level.
Gippsland PHN is a trusted, authoritative and credible source of information; a vehicle for collaboration and a strong advocate, essential to local decision-making and capacity building.
About the role
Gippsland Primary Health Network is looking for new Board directors; people who will be as committed to meeting the health needs of our diverse region as all those who come under the PHN banner.
The investment in our work has never been more important so we need people who are community-focused and not afraid to bring new ideas to the table.
Our vision is for a measurably healthier Gippsland. Every day, we work hard to achieve this. The health needs of our regional community, especially vulnerable people and those at risk of the poorest health outcomes, depend on it.
We are unashamedly outcomes-focused. We are a tight-knit organisation which constantly pushes above its weight, made possible through our resolve to work as a team. It takes innovative and creative people to ensure we provide the right services at the right time; services that make a difference. You will help us identify new opportunities, coordinate and support health services and commission new services.
Our board directors are also responsible for ensuring governance and oversight of Gippsland PHN’s legal and financial accountability and statutory requirements, as well as compliance with funding deed requirements.
We need diversity of knowledge, expertise and experience. This may be in some of the following areas:
Strong governance skills/experience
IT systems and/or data management
Primary Health Care
Community commitments in Gippsland
We are seeking two elected Directors and one appointed Director to join us in November 2022. If you believe you are up for the challenge to help us achieve our vision, you are encouraged to apply.
