The Inner North West Primary Care Partnership (INW PCP) was formed in 2010 from over 30 health and human service agencies within the four local government areas (LGAs) of Melbourne, Yarra, Moreland and Moonee Valley.
The vision of the INW PCP is founded on the social model of health and aims to improve the health and wellbeing of our target population. The INW PCP seeks to achieve this by engaging and collaborating with member agencies in the primary care sectors, community sector and local government around integrated health promotion, service coordination and integrated chronic disease management.
