Primary Health Network (PHN) comparisons

  • This section reflects the number and proportion of health check patients who received a follow-‍up service in the 12 months following their health check, by the year that their health check was delivered.
  • Some people who have health checks will not need follow-up services. If it were possible, excluding those individuals from the denominator could potentially increase the percentages markedly and reveal different variation.
  • Some records from a small number of service providers have been excluded due to data quality concerns.

Geographic information

This analysis is based on the postcode of the patient’s given mailing address. As a result, the data may not always reflect where the person actually lived – particularly for people who use PO boxes. This is likely to impact some areas more than others and will also have a generally greater impact on the accuracy of smaller geographic areas and more remote areas.
