Our Clinical Advisory Council

Brisbane South PHN’s Clinical Advisory Council advises on clinical issues to enable Brisbane South PHN’s Board to make informed decisions on the unique needs of our community.

Council members are appointed for a two-year term and help Brisbane South PHN develop local strategies to improve the operation of the health care system for patients, and facilitates effective primary healthcare to reduce avoidable hospital presentations and admissions.

They advise and influence the Board on opportunities to improve medical and healthcare services through strategic, cost-effective investment and innovation.
