Northern Queensland Primary Health Network (NQPHN) is an independent not-for-profit primary health organisation, funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health, tasked with coordinating primary health care services for the Mackay, Townsville, Cairns, Cape York Peninsula and Torres Strait regions.
NQPHN will coordinate primary and preventive healthcare that is, the healthcare that takes place outside of a hospital, such as GPs, allied health, chronic disease management, aged care, mental health and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. Primary health care is recognised as the most effective way to keep communities and individuals healthy and well.
ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY:
NQPHN is providing funding to organisations to develop and implement innovative models that meet the After Hours Residential Aged Care Facility needs on the Atherton Tablelands. For the purposes of this proposal, the Atherton Tablelands is defined as those regions within 30 kms of Mareeba or Atherton city centres. The goal of the program is to upskill RACF staff (and other relevant service providers) to deliver comprehensive aged care, thereby assisting in the management of after hours service needs. The program also aims to strengthen coordination and collaborative systems between RACFs and other service providers in the after hours period. An overview of the specific service model available for tender is described in Section 4 of the Service Requirements document. The overview provides a summary of the anticipated program goals, objectives, actions and outcomes. Applicants may address all or parts of the service requirements.
A total maximum funding value of $200,000 (GST exclusive) is available which may be awarded to one (1) or multiple provider/s proposals. Given the scope of the service design, a minimum funding amount for any single application will be set at $50,000 (GST exclusive).
