Murrumbidgee After Hours Regional Plan
Open Request for Proposal (RFP)
Closing: 3.00pm AEDT on 12 November 2019
Providing after hours primary care is a key priority for the Commonwealth from a policy and funding perspective. PHNs receive specific funding to work with local stakeholders to plan and deliver population based after hours primary care services to their communities.
However improving access to after-hours primary care services continues to be a challenge particularly for people who are financial vulnerable, are living with mental health issues, from different cultures, or are living in rural and remote regions which are facing chronic workforce shortages.
Given the continuing challenges in providing after hours primary care, MPHN in conjunction with the MLHD are seeking to develop an After Hours Regional Plan for the Murrumbidgee region to develop innovative and localised solutions to provide accessible after hours options across our communities. The plan will be developed from a base of extensive consultation and be underpinned by localised data. The After Hours Regional Plan is a joint initiative of the MLHD and MPHN.
Murrumbidgee Primary Health Network (MPHN) is seeking proposals from suitably experienced organisations to undertake an extensive consultation process and subsequent development of an After Hours Regional Plan. Based on the plan, a number of pilots will also be developed for implementation and evaluation.
