Sydney North Health Network (SNHN) is one of 31 primary health networks which have been established by the Australian Government with the key objectives of:
- Increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of medical services for patients, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes;
- Improving coordination of care to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place at the right time.
The Sydney North Clinical Council will provide guidance to the SNHN Board on clinical issues relevant to primary care, including providing input to determine local health priorities, developing strategies and identifying opportunities for improvements across primary/acute healthcare interfaces, overseeing development of clinical pathways, quality, efficiency and continuity of care, advising on development of innovative services, support and engagement of primary care, and primary care research.
