Strategic Plan

Inner East Primary Care Partnership Strategic Plan 2017 – 2021

Our new strategic pillars and key focus areas have been developed in collaboration with our partners and are the foundation for achieving our vision, mission, and core purpose of making a positive difference to health and wellbeing within the Inner East catchment through collaborative effort.

The Inner East PCP Board endorsed the new strategic plan in October 2017.
