Strategic Planning

Primary Care Partnerships (PCP) planning must align with the State Department of Health’s PCP Program Logic and the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2015-19 and Municipal Health and Wellbeing Plans 2017-21 of their shires and address evidence based health and wellbeing for communities.cvpcp-strategic-framework-diagram_v2

The Central Victorian Primary Care Partnership’s (CVPCP) planning process is evidence based. We have used our community health and wellbeing profile and other sources of population based data; consultation and involvement with our shire forums and discussions with our partners and other key agencies to define our priority populations and issues. We know that the population profile will change with a disproportionate increase in the elderly across all shires. We know that for longer-term impact we must focus on the early years – children, young people and their families and we understand that we must work within a social model of health and wellbeing – otherwise we are supporting siloed approaches and band aid strategies. There is a wider environment of reform and change that we must be able to understand and respond to, so we can support our partners to identify and act on opportunities for collaboration and mutual benefit and to remain sustainable.

Health & Wellbeing Partnership Plans 2017-2021Municipal Public Health & Wellbeing Plan
In each of our three shires our partners have come together to produce a single plan capturing prevention and health promotion priorities and activities from 2017-2021. The purpose of these partnership plans is to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities by supporting a systems approach to place-based prevention.
Aligning with Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plans, these documents encompass Integrated Health Promotion Plans, PCP prevention plans and local government implementation plans.
Each council’s approach and strategy to health and wellbeing is documented in their Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan (MPHWP). The MPHWP sets the broad mission, goals and priorities to enable people living in the municipality to achieve maximum health and wellbeing. In Macedon Ranges and Mount Alexander Shires, MPHWP are integrated into the broader Council Plans.

Central Victorian Primary Care Partnership acknowledges the traditional owners on whose land we live and work, their rich culture and spiritual connection to country. We pay our respects to Elders past and present and celebrate their living culture and unique role in the life of our catchment.
