Key messages

  • Primary Care Partnerships (PCPs) report regularly on their activities to the Department of Health & Human Services.
  • The department uses this information to monitor the impacts of PCP activity against the Primary Care Partnership program logic 2013-17.
  • The department may seek additional information if required.

This page provides an outline of the requirements for Primary Care Partnerships (PCPs) to report to the Department of Health & Human Services on their activities between 1 July 2017 and 30 June 2018.

The purpose of reporting is to enable the Department to monitor the impacts of PCP activity against the Primary Care Partnership Program Logic 2013-17 (the Program Logic). This has been extended for 12 months until 30 June 2018.

This year’s requirements are outlined in the Primary Care Partnerships – 2017-18 reporting requirements. Please refer to this document for information on how to submit reports.

Important reminder

The following is an update of reporting for 2017-18:

  • Submit a financial statement - PCPs need to provide both an income statement (income and expenditure) and a balance sheet (assets and liabilities). Surplus or deficit relating to DHHS PCP funding needs to be made clear. Outstanding project commitments must be clearly identified. Any proposal to carry over PCP funds will be assessed by the Regional Office. The annual financial statement must be endorsed by the PCP governance group. 
  • E-Referral report – although numbers will have decreased significantly with the introduction of My Aged Care and NDIS, e-Referral reporting is still a DHHS reporting requirement to treasury.  
  • Strategic Plans – ensure DHHS has your current Strategic Plan.  Plans may be submitted which have been recently reviewed and updated or if new plans have been developed these are also welcome to be submitted.
  • All other reporting is encouraged although optional. This is by negotiation between DHHS Divisional Representative and PCPs.
