NQPHN Emergency SMS Alert System

After the COVID-19 pandemic, floods, and other emergencies, NQPHN has initiated the 'Build Back Better – Primary Care' initiative. The initiative introduces a series of new primary care capacity and capability-building activities. The first to go live is the ability to have access to critical and immediate information.

In the event of an emergency affecting primary health care in the NQPHN region, there needs to be a system to provide clear and immediate information to healthcare providers.

To facilitate this, NQPHN is asking general practices and pharmacies to opt-in to subscribe to the NQPHN Emergency SMS Alert System.
