Gippsland Primary Health Network (Gippsland PHN) works to improve health and wellbeing of people across Gippsland.
We rely on information from people in Gippsland to help us work on what is most needed.
We will consider all the information in our thinking and will publish summary information here from time to time to let you know what we have learnt and how it’s being used.
Help us make better decisions by sharing your experiences and ideas about how we improve health and wellbeing in your community – how we design, fund and coordinate services for health care across Gippsland.

Gippsland PHN are working with Monash University to learn more about the health needs of the Gippsland community.
You can help us by completing a 10 minute survey.
At the end of the survey, you can enter a draw to win one of ten $100 supermarket vouchers and you have the option to tell us more about your health care in an interview or other format. You can also participate in future opportunities related to this survey.
Or phone 03 5175 5444 and ask for the Explanatory Statement, reply paid envelopes and survey to be mailed to you.
I understand that;
- the research may not be of any direct benefit to me;
- summary information gained during the study may be published, but my personal results will not be shared; and
- I am free to withdraw from the project at any time.

How can we keep our community healthy? A Latrobe Community Conversation.
Gippsland PHN is working with the Latrobe Health Innovation Zone to learn more about how we can keep our community healthy and well.
We are interested in what we can do to prevent long-term health conditions in our community, like Type 2 Diabetes and Heart, Respiratory or Kidney Disease.
Be part of the solution and help keep our community healthy.
We would like to ask you some questions, including:
· What does prevention mean to you?
· What you know about long-term health conditions?
· What do you know about risk factors for long-term health conditions?
· How you can avoid long-term health conditions and is this important to you?
Health information is often hard to understand and stay on top of as it is forever changing. We would like your help to inform future projects including the development of an awareness raising campaign for the community about achieving better health.
Please spare a few minutes to share your experience and opinions to help us improve your health and the health of Latrobe Valley.
Download the flyer and share it with your networks.
There are two ways you can participate:
Participate in a brief telephone conversation or complete an online survey. If you choose a telephone conversation you will receive a coffee voucher from a local café as a thank you for your time.
