Local area coverage rates

Coverage rates for local areas can be quite different to the state or territory rates. To explore coverage in your local area, take a look at:

What are PHNs? The Australian Government set up 31 PHNs across the country to improve the coordination of health services. Find your PHN by using the PHN map locator.

What are SA3s? The Australian Bureau of Statistics uses SA3s to group data by region. Australia is divided into 358 SA3s. You can find out more about SA3s by visiting the ABS website.
