Councils and Committees

WA Primary Health Alliance is supported by Councils and Committees that advise our Board on the setting of strategic priorities while providing operational guidance to officers of the organisation when requested.  They assist us in progressing our key priorities.

Within the structure are GP-chaired Metropolitan Clinical Councils, one each for the Perth North and Perth South Primary Health Networks, which bring together clinicians from an array of health disciplines.  These are mirrored by Metropolitan Community Advisory Councils, populated by community and consumer representatives.  The Councils act as a critical friend to PHNs, advising our Board by bringing community perspectives to bear on the setting of priorities.

The Country WA Primary Health Network is supported by seven GP-chaired Regional Clinical Committees. Membership consists of WA Country Health Service representatives as well as clinicians from an array of allied health backgrounds, including Aboriginal Health, Pharmacy and Physiotherapy.
