PHN Showcase – Inspiring Commissioning Innovation (Nationwide, Australia)

Supporting 5 x Annual National Primary Health Network Commissioning Showcases

Supporting National PHN Commissioning Showcases

Since 2017, the Rebbeck team has supported the national PHN movement to run 5 x National PHN Commissioning Showcases, providing a forum for PHNs to share international and national commissioning good practice and innovation. The event is also a great opportunity for PHNs to network and swap notes with colleagues facing similar challenges. 

100% of participants would recommend the event to a colleague

“Extraordinary insights. This was gold”

“The keynote presenters were excellent as was the networking”

“Well structured agenda, covering all the burning topics that commissioners really need to hear about.”

The client

Australia’s Primary Health Networks (PHNs) are responsible for identifying the needs of people in their regions, working with GPs and other health professionals to build workforce capacity and integrate health services to deliver better outcomes and experiences for their communities.

The challenge

In 2017, Rebbeck teamed up with HNECC PHN to develop the inaugural National PHN Commissioning Showcase. This event attracted nearly 80 participants from more than two thirds of Australia’s PHNs.​

Since that first year, the event has been supported by the NSW PHN Alliance, and continues to grow in popularity and scale. ​

The event is now run on an annual basis and is organised by a dedicated group of members drawn from across the New South Wales Primary Health Network Alliance (NSW PHN Alliance).​

At Rebbeck, we are delighted to have supported the design and facilitation of every National PHN Commissioning Showcase since its inception.​

From the outset, our mantra has been to design the PHN Commissioning Showcase ‘by PHNs for PHNs’. ​

We use a highly consultative engagement approach to co-design and facilitate the event and have been delighted to see an ever-increasing level of PHN commissioning innovation on display every year!

The impact of our work

The PHN Commissioning Showcase has become a unique and important event in the PHN calendar for PHNs to:

  • Enhance commissioning learnings across the PHN network, fostering deeper interactions and knowledge sharing.
  • Learn based on exemplars of national and international commissioning good practice.
  • Understand and consider the application of global trends in the social health sector with a focus on commissioning.
  • Foster opportunities for collaboration and co-design that reduce cost and accelerate PHN progression.

We are excited to support this event grow from strength to strength over the coming years.
