Summit Health Centre and EV chargepoints

The Summit Health Centre has installed 2 EV charge-points free for public use. Funded with grants from local Councils and Regional Development Australia, these points will enable the electric vehicles used by the community transport network to take patients between Strathalbyn and Mt Barker in order to access health appointments at service providers around each town. Volunteer drivers will be able to use the Centre as a hub; charging vehicles between trips and using our staff facilities to take breaks. 
We continue to attract more and more service providers to the Centre, improving access for your patients to health services that are local and not Adelaide-based. A full listing is available on our Summit Health Centre website.

Summit Health service expansion

The Country SA PHN has funded Summit Health to deliver mental health services across a broader region that now encompasses Kangaroo Island and Fleurieu Peninsula. This does not alter our membership region which remains restricted to the Adelaide Hills but will ensure that the same quality service is accessible by a broader community.

Member Survey

In the next week or so, an online member survey will be sent out seeking your views on the future direction of this organisation. There has been a lot of change in primary care over the past few years and the Board wants your views on what you need moving forward to help with its strategic planning in September. Please take the time to complete it - it wont take long  - so that we can best reflect what you want from this organisation.
