Our Board established two councils, the Clinical Council and Community Advisory Council to provide strategic guidance and advice on locally relevant clinical and consumer issues. The Councils and Board work closely to help achieve our vision that people in the NT enjoy their best health and wellbeing.

We're recruiting for Clinical Council members

If you’re in the health sector and looking to broaden your scope of experience or perhaps wind down your career but still have a finger on the pulse – this may be the right opportunity for you.

Being a Clinical Council member requires you to attend only 4 meetings a year yet provides you with a wealth of opportunities.

Networking with clinical peers, contributing to strategic changes in the health sector, meeting people from different backgrounds and regions, and voicing issues that concern you or your community are just a few of the things you can expect to get from this position. Not to mention, you’ll be paid for your time and become a member of a group that values your personal and professional experiences and insights.

The purpose of the council is to provide strategic guidance and advice to NT PHN’s Board and management on locally relevant clinical issues.

In other words, you’ll help be the conduit between health providers, by knowing what’s happening on the ground, and NT PHN’s Board.

You’ll have the chance to advocate on behalf of others to ensure NT PHN’s decisions, investments, and innovations are patient-centred and aligned to local expectations and experiences.

Members of the council will reflect and represent the five NT government health regions and hold clinical expertise in mental health, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, general practice, aged care, digital health, alcohol and other drugs, or population health.

Be a part of the bigger picture and help improve health outcomes in the Territory while broadening your own skills and knowledge.
