The Victorian and Tasmanian PHN Alliance provides a platform for PHNs to engage in state-wide project coordination, work cohesively across the PHN sector, and streamline communications and engagement efforts.
The Alliance offers a point of contact for stakeholders and partners on issues of a state-wide focus, and mechanism for jurisdictional coordination.
The Chair is formally responsible for overseeing and leading the work of the Alliance and acts as the primary senior contact for the Alliance.
Chair and Deputy Chair responsibilities include leadership and oversight of jurisdictional efforts, including strategic engagement and development for the purposes of optimising collective levers. Key roles are formalised in the VTPHNA governance arrangements.
The two PHN sector leadership roles are a one year appointment, effective for a calendar year. A/Prof Christopher Carter and Matt Jones have been appointed for 2019.
The Manager of the VTPHNA operates in a senior policy capacity working closely with the VTPHNA Chair. Ms Jade Hart currently holds this role.
