Buloke Loddon Gannawarra (BLG) Health Needs Analysis Implementation Plan

Bendigo Loddon PCP was fortunate to be successful in tendering for the Loddon Gannawarra Health Needs Project in 2016. The Loddon Gannawarra Health Needs Analysis (LGHNA) was completed within timeframes and budget in December 2016 and the recommendations of the LGHNA underpin the current implementation plan project.


BLPCP and SMPCP are active members in the Buloke Loddon Gannawarra (BLG) Health Network with a clear role of supporting health service planning and collaboration to improve the health system in response to the place- based needs and opportunities in Loddon, Buloke and Gannawarra Shires. The Implementation Plan translates the identified health needs priorities into Action Plans for each priority across the three Shires.

The CEO Vision Project was a funded initiative of Regional Development Australia. The Project consultation engaged representatives from the health, community services and education sectors in the content and direction of potential investment projects to enhance the health and wellbeing of the communities across the Loddon Mallee Region. This report provides an investment prospectus for social and built infrastructure for related projects. It includes the initial evidence base, discussion content and the Project outlines priorities of the Loddon Mallee Region health services CEOs.


The Health Sector Working Group wishes to acknowledge the support of Regional Development Australia – Loddon Mallee Region. 

Loddon Gannawarra Health Needs Analysis

Built on BLPCP Loddon Shire partners’ participation within the Loddon Gannawarra Health Services Executive Network (LGHSEN) established in 2015. The Initiative was developed to respond to the Primary Health Networks commissioning environment around health priorities. Partner agencies keen to document and collate the place -based evidence base for local service collaboration. The target audience for the document are health system decision makers within the Loddon and Gannawarra Shires.

Project was commissioned by LGHSEN with funding from DHHS and undertaken by BLPCP staff. 

Dementia Project

The Project aimed to “Improve the awareness and recognition of Dementia and develop and implement pathways to support improved assessment, diagnosis and support for people living with Dementia, and their families within the Bendigo Loddon catchment.” Three communities were targeted for this work- Inglewood, Boort and Heathcote. 

Setting the Groundwork

Violence against women is serious, widespread and preventable. It comes in many forms, affecting families across Australia of all ages, cultural backgrounds and socioeconomic status.

Health and community service organisations play an important role in the safety and wellbeing of women and families, influencing not just their employees and clients, but also the community more broadly.

Setting the Groundwork is a project working to support organisations to "change the story" by assessing their current ability to prevent, address and respond to violence against women.

The project recognises the achievements and accomplishments of the organisations and provides resources to support opportunities for quality improvements.
