CEO Report March 2018

9/03/2018

With the Gold Coast region busily preparing for the Commonwealth Games, we hope that members of the Gold Coast community have considered how the event will impact your day-to-day activities, bearing in mind that there will be significant number of road closures all over the Gold Coast, traffic congestion, access restrictions and changes to public transport. 

Visit www.getsetforthegames.com for the most up-to-date information, including an option to sign-up to receive email or SMS notifications on road closures and traffic delays in your local area. 

In addition to getting set for The Games, March is serving up a number of other events including Kidney Health week (March 5 – 11), International Women’s Day (March 8), Closing the Gap Day (March 15), Gold Coast Senior’s Expo (March 15) and Harmony Day (March 21).

On March 3 GCPHN, Gold Coast Health and Gold Coast General Practice hosted the Women and Children’s Health Symposium. The day was a remarkable success and so far, we have received great feedback from attendees. GCPHN looks forward to more collaborative education events in the future.

Immunisation continues to be a priority with Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) supporting a targeted campaign to improve childhood immunisation rates in low vaccination areas across Australia, including the Gold Coast Hinterland. The national campaign will target parents of children aged five years and under and pregnant women and their partners. GCPHN will continue to promote the importance of vaccination through our programs and ongoing engagement with GPs, health professionals and the community.

Work is continuing on the My Health Record Expansion program and we are out and about talking to providers and community about the program. Keep your eye out for upcoming information sessions for general practice, pharmacy and allied health professionals. For further details about these events visit www.healthygc.com.au or contact our Digital Health team on 07 5635 2455.
