Primary Health Tasmania produces two publications on a regular basis: a twice-yearly magazine showcasing local innovation in health care, and an e-newsletter for general practices.

Primary Health Matters

Primary Health Matters – Tasmania’s primary health magazine – comes out twice a year.

Its feature-length articles showcase innovation in primary, aged and social care across the state.

It’s a blend of news about what we’re up to, as well as profiles of other people, teams and organisations doing good work to keep Tasmanians happy and healthy.

Our latest issue includes stories about:

  • the experience of local health workers on the COVID-19 frontline
  • how Primary Health Tasmania’s commissioned providers navigated the challenge of providing care during a pandemic
  • the power of storytelling in suicide prevention.
