To support our region’s growing community of people aged 65 and over, Brisbane North PHN in collaboration with Metro North Hospital and Health Service (MNHHS), has developed a new five year healthcare plan for older people.
This five year plan will guide the way healthcare services are delivered to this group of people in our community and represents a commitment between the PHN and MNHHS to improve the coordination, integration and provision of care services to support the health and wellbeing of older people to help them stay healthy and at home.
Inclusiveness is central to this plan, by ensuring that patients and their families, community organisations and other key stakeholders, work collaboratively with healthcare providers to keep our older population engaged and healthy.
Over the next five years, this plan will guide a coordinated, networked service system to help as many older people as possible to remain in their home environment. It is not the last word, but a document that will allow the vision to expand and grow.
