Primary Health Networks - After Hours Primary Health Care Programme

Country SA PHN (CSAPHN) is being funded to work to address gaps in After Hours service arrangements and improve service integration within the CSAPHN region.

The Key programme objectives of Primary Health Networks – After Hours Primary Health Care Programme are:

  • Increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of After Hours Primary Health Care for patients, particularly those with limited access to Health Services; and
  • Improving access to After Hours Primary Health Care through effective planning, coordination and support for population based After Hours Primary Health Care.

We are not funded to replicate or duplicate services provided by the Practice Incentive Programme (PIP) After Hours Incentive.

All commissioned activities are based on community need, as identified in the latest Needs Assessment and take into account a systems-view of after hours provision in the CSAPHN region.
