Our vision is that Territorians enjoy their best health and wellbeing.

Rural Workforce

Unlike other Primary Health Networks, we have a rural workforce agency. The Rural Workforce Agency NT attracts, recruits, and supports health professionals working across regional and remote communities in the NT. Support programs include orientation for new recruits, professional development, GP locum relief, grants and scholarships, workforce planning and advice, and practice management support.

Primary Health Care

Primary health care is the first point of contact a person has with Australia’s healthcare system. As one of 31 Primary Health Networks around the country, and the only one in the NT, it’s our role to help meet the primary health care needs and priorities of Territorians. We do this by identifying gaps in our health system and commissioning local providers to deliver services to fill those gaps.
