A community where all people enjoy quality of life and are healthy, well, and active.

The Central Hume PCP will:
- Respect and value the views of all partners.

- Apply catchment wide and place-based approaches.
- Work collaboratively and collectively, and pool our resources for greatest impact.
Our Priority Population Groups
Our priority population groups include older people, families with young children, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, people living with chronic disease, and women and children facing violence.
The Central Hume PCP’s Strategic Plan 2018-2020 has been developed as part of a collaborative process between Central Hume PCP members and stakeholders. The strategic priorities represent the collaborative work and shared vision of the Partnership and provide a clear direction for our work together over two years.
Central Hume is in the North East of Victoria.
Working at the catchment level helps us to achieve systems change.
The smaller hospitals and their communities rely on the regional hospital in Wangaratta.
Our small rural communities need access to other regional health and wellbeing services.
These services are also based in Wangaratta. They are funded to service our catchment.
