Healthy North Coast is a key partner in the coordinated response to support our region and communities who are being impacted by the current bushfires.
The immediate focus has been for people living and working in affected areas is personal safety and property protection. Support strategies across our region have been led by Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery in partnership with NSW Disaster Recovery.
As a Primary Health Network, we are here to support our local primary care workforce, as well as helping to prepare for any possible increase in medical needs. We are working closely with emergency services and the Mid North Coast and Northern NSW Local Health Districts to implement proactive strategies, and we are seeking priority feedback from our general practice, pharmacy, Aboriginal medical services, psychology and other mental health professional networks.
We are currently seeking registrations from our Healthy Minds providers and Mental Health Nurses networks to provide additional support for our communities in need. Please provide information below.
