Phil Edmondson

Phil is the CEO of Primary Health Tasmania, a non-government, not-for-profit organisation working to connect care and keep Tasmanians well and out of hospital and one of 31 Primary Health Networks nationally.

Phil has worked in the general practice and primary health care sector for more than 20 years at both program management and organisational leadership levels and is well known to providers and system, policy and organisational administrators across the state.  He sees his current role working with providers and communities to build understanding and capacity to influence the outcomes that Tasmanians have a right to expect from their health system. Getting balance in a large system is challenging, and the work of the Premier’s Health and Wellbeing Advisory Council is helping shape prevention as a vital focal point in a strong and effective Tasmanian health system.

Phil is looking forward to working with colleagues towards a healthier Tasmania.
