About us

Melbourne Primary Care Network (MPCN) is an independent, locally governed and run, not for profit organisation dedicated to improving primary healthcare in our community. MPCN operates the North Western Melbourne PHN.

Our vision
To improve the health of everyone in our region.

Our mission
To strengthen primary health care and connect services across the system.

PHNs have been established with the key objectives of increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of medical services for patients, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes; and improving coordination of care to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place,at the right time.

At North Western Melbourne PHN we achieve these aims by focusing on three main functions: that of an improver; a director of funds; and a targeter of needs. As an improver, we strengthen access to, and the quality of, general practice and primary health care. As a director of funds, we attract and aggregate resources for the region, and allocate these fairly and efficiently. As a targeter of needs we understand and identify health needs, establish priorities, and plan, advocate and collaborate to meet them.
