One of the important ways we can improve whole-of-life health and wellbeing across our region is through a well-coordinated primary health sector.
Brisbane South PHN plays a key role in working with a range of primary health care services and health professionals to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of services for patients, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes.
Brisbane South PHN’s Constitution outlines the nature of the organisation.
This includes but is not limited to the membership, frequency of meetings, no profits for members, indemnity, insurance, powers of the Board and appointment, remuneration and retirement of directors and the Chief Executive Officer.
Year in Review
Working Together Differently – Brisbane South Mental Health, Suicide Prevention and Alcohol and Other Drug Foundation Plan 2020–2022
Brisbane South PHN in partnership with Metro South Addiction and Mental Health Services (MSAMHS) have developed the Working Together Differently – Brisbane South Mental Health, Suicide Prevention and Alcohol and Other Drug Foundation Plan 2020-2022. The Foundation Plan is the framework for how Brisbane South PHN and MSAMHS will work together in the short term to lay the foundations for working together differently in the future. The Foundation Plan describes the key actions and agreed priorities for new and joint services and service planning for the future and provides the link between the work undertaken by the partners on the priority strategic domains of the Brisbane South Mental Health, Suicide Prevention and Alcohol and Other Drug Strategy 2019-2022. The Foundation Plan will inform future collaboration with a commitment to developing a comprehensive 5-year Joint Regional Plan by June 2022.
Brisbane South Mental Health, Suicide Prevention, and Alcohol and Other Drug (MHSPAOD) Strategy 2019 – 2022
In 2017 Brisbane South PHN commenced a planning process to create a regional mental health, suicide prevention, and alcohol and other drug strategy and roadmap for 2019-2022. The final Brisbane South Mental Health, Suicide Prevention, and Alcohol and Other Drug (MHSPAOD) Strategy 2019-2022 and roadmap articulates a system-wide vision for future provision of services in Brisbane south which has been developed based on information from the 2018 Needs Assessment and through extensive consultation with the public sector, private and non-government service providers, primary care, consumers and carers.
Brisbane South PHN developed the Primary Health Care Digital Health Strategy and Roadmap 2018 – 2021, Brisbane south region (Digital Health Strategy and Roadmap) to identify shared digital health priorities and guide action to support adoption and use of digital health technologies in primary health care that will contribute to improving health and wellbeing in the Brisbane south region.
Each year Brisbane South PHN prepares a ‘Needs Assessment’ in partnership with Metro South Health, Children’s Health Queensland, Mater Health Services and the local community.
Health professionals, people who work in the health sector and members of the Brisbane South community are invited to participate in improving local health outcomes. Brisbane South PHN will use the confidential responses to ensure the Needs Assessment reflects a collaborative approach in accordance with the organisation’s vision of ‘Better System, Better Health’.

Brisbane South PHN has developed 20 sub-regional profiles to complement our Needs Assessment and provide a greater level of detail about our communities. The profiles provide an overview of topics such as demographics, social determinants, health service usage, participation in screening and healthy behaviours and morbidity and mortality for selected conditions. They will be used by the Brisbane South PHN and our partners to identify variation within our region and assist in planning and delivering services to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities.
The sub-regional profiles are listed below, along with the postcodes they cover.
