North Coast Needs Assessment Reports and Fact Sheets Now Available

A key role of the North Coast Primary Health Network (NCPHN) is to identify local health needs and service gaps and, based on this evidence, prioritise activity to address those needs. As part of this objective, NCPHN has recently published health needs assessment reports with some concerning health statistics. 




The Needs Assessment reports include an extensive and detailed summary of the most current and relevant health and service data available relating to general population health; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health; primary mental health; and alcohol and other drug treatment. 

In addition to national and state health data, the reports include findings from the 2018 local health needs assessment community survey that was held in June 2018 and completed by 3,372 North Coast locals from Port Macquarie to Tweed Heads. 

Based on information presented in the reports, NCPHN will be launching the 2019 factsheet series over the coming months, in which health data is presented in a concise and visual way organised by LGAs and 11 health or priority group topics.
