The Southern Mallee Primary Care Partnership (Southern Mallee PCP) is an ongoing dynamic, collaboration where purpose, risks and benefits are shared to improve the well-being of our community.
SMPCP Leadership Team
The Leadership Team is a dynamic group of eight leaders consisting of; Employer and Fund Holder portfolio Agencies, one representative from each of the Local Government Area Partnership (three in total), Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation representative, a co-opted member and the Southern Mallee PCP Executive Officer, who has no voting rights.
Member Agencies will actively contribute to the Southern Mallee PCP Strategic Direction and Strategic Plan development, implementation and evaluation and place based activity.
A second tier of partnership, known as 'Community Supporters', is more inclusive with a broad focus allowing participation from community groups, businesses and sectors that meet all domains of the Social Determinants of Health are encouraged to participate.
With a defined purpose, a strategic forum for the Leadership Team, Member Agencies and Community Supporters to discuss new issues and opportunities will be facilitated. This will provide the opportunity and engage others for greater voice and involvement across the partnership.
