The NQPHN Board is currently seeking expressions of interest from community members across the Cape and Torres, Cairns, Townsville, and Mackay regions to join the CAG. CAG membership provides an excellent opportunity to help shape the delivery of primary health care in North Queensland.

About the Clinical Council

The NQPHN Clinical Council provides the NQPHN Clinical Governance sub-committee of the Board with contemporary advice on local health needs and priorities ensuring that there is an appropriate evidence base to regional commissioning, specifically, planning and design of services, stakeholder engagement, and continuing development and refinement of the Health Needs Assessment (HNA).

The Clinical Council provides a critical overview of the NQPHN regions to ensure that overall investment is in line with the regional HNA.

The Council acts in an advisory capacity to the NQPHN Clinical Governance Committee which has the delegated responsibility of the NQPHN Board.
