Board Chair Report - Dr Alison Edwards
The 2019/20 year has been anything but routine, but the Country SA PHN (CSAPHN) has stepped up to the plate and been a strong voice for the role of primary health care at the forefront of bushfire recovery and pandemics.
The Board took pause last year and undertook an external review to see what areas of good governance required more attention and has made some changes to internal and Board processes in response to this. We expected to swing into 2020 with a new found vigour only to be pushed back by the devastation of the bushfires across our regions hotly followed by the need to modify our business processes due to the precautions put in place around COVID-19. The organisation and the Board have managed with a modified meeting schedule with more teleconferences and video-meetings.
