Queensland Primary Health Care Network origins
Originally established as a network in 2010, the Queensland Primary Health Care Network (QPHCN) traces its roots back to late 2009 when a series of Primary Health Care Round Tables were organised to foster connections between organisations and facilitate the exchang of information concerning the national health reform agenda. As these gatherings continued, the participating organisations recognised the value of the partnerships being formed and the insightful discussions that were taking place, leading to a decision to formalise the network. Over time, the QPHCN grew to encompass a group of almost 80 state-level primary health and community care related organisations who came together with a common interest in networking, information sharing, and gaining a collective understanding of the opportunities and challenges prevalent in Queensland’s primary healthcare sector. Today, CheckUP proudly hosts quarterly events for the health sector, building upon the foundation laid by the QPHCN.
