Health Providers' Partnership Forum

Last updated: 
1 September 2020

The Health Providers' Partnership Forum (HPPF) meets regularly to discuss health matters relating to veterans. The forum allows us to collaborate and work with peak bodies from the health sector. 

What the forum does

The HPPF provides peak bodies with access to relevant DVA program managers.

The forum ensures that we have access to expert advice and evidence-based research. 

Using the advice, research and our own strategic priorities, we develop:

  • veteran health policy
  • service delivery arrangements

Forum agendas draw on:

  • health sector input
  • discussions with DVA business areas
  • findings from other groups

We continue to meet with professional associations outside the formal forum meetings.

Who is on the forum

Meeting attendees can include:

  • standing members from DVA and the ex-service community
  • interested health organisations and associations

A representative from the National Consultation Framework forum provides the ex-service organisation's (ESOs) and veterans' perspective.

We invite peak body associations on our health sector database.

To find out if your association participates please contact the secretariat. 

The standing members of the forum are:

  • HPPF Chair: First Assistant Secretary, Client Engagement and Support Services Division
  • HPPF Deputy Chair: Assistant Secretary, Provider Engagement and Management Branch
  • Chief Health Officer
  • Deputy Commissioner Vic
  • Assistant Secretary, Client Access and Rehabilitation Branch
  • Assistant Secretary, Wellbeing Policy Branch
  • Assistant Secretary, Client Programs Branch
  • ESO representative

Meetings

The next HPPF will be held on Tuesday 15 September 2020.

If the chair cannot attend a meeting then the deputy chair will run it.

The forum is a consultative group and decides issues by consensus. If this is not possible, the chair decides.

The forum meets 3 or 4 times a year. The chair may schedule extra meetings if they are necessary.
