Country SA PHN


Country SA PHN is one of 31 Primary Health Networks (PHNs) which were established by the Australian Government across Australia in 2015. The key objectives of the PHNs are to


  • Increase the efficiency and effectiveness of medical services for patients, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes: and
  • Improve the coordination of care to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place at the right time.


Country SA PHN covers all of South Australia, apart from the Adelaide metropolitan area. Our region covers 99.8% of the State geographically, incorporating approximately 30% of South Australia’s total population.


Our mission is to bridge the gap of health inequity and access in rural South Australia by building a collaborative and responsive country SA health care system. We are committed to improving the patient experience of the health system.
