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.

Our catchment covers four local government areas – Alpine, Benalla, Mansfield and Wangaratta. We are part of the Ovens Murray Goulburn area as shown below.

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.

The governance of the Central Hume PCP is the responsibility of the Central Hume PCP Executive Committee.

There are eight members of the Central Hume PCP Executive.

  • Four Central Hume PCP Health & Wellbeing Partnership representatives. These are the Chairs elected by Central Hume PCP members who participate on each of the Health & Wellbeing Partnerships (LGA based).
  • Three general members, elected by the membership of the Central Hume PCP.
  • One member who is the auspice organisation for the Central Hume PCP.

The appointments to the Executive Committee are for 2 year terms.
