Are you looking for a role where you can make a real difference to the health of Tasmanians?

Primary Health Tasmania may have the career opportunity you are looking for.

Primary Health Tasmania is a non-government, not-for-profit organisation working to connect care and keep Tasmanians well and out of hospital.  We are one of 31 primary health networks (PHNs) established nationally on 1 July 2015 as part of the Australian Government’s Primary Health Networks program.

Primary Health Tasmania operates statewide with offices in Hobart, Launceston and Ulverstone.

We have strong relationships with a broad range of private, public and community sector organisations across primary, acute, aged and social care.  This puts us in good stead in our push for a coordinated, primary care-focused health system delivering the right care in the right place at the right time by the right people.

While building on the work of previous general practice and primary care organisations, a significant difference for Primary Health Tasmania is the transition to being a commissioning entity – commissioning for measurable health outcomes – rather than a direct provider of services.
