What does an effective health and medical precinct look like? What does it do? How can community and health service users engage in precincts? And most importantly, how can a precinct impact on health and wellbeing?

Join us in the morning and find out about how successful partnerships and precincts operate. Be part of the discussion with community, clinical, academic and industry leaders and have your say. In the afternoon, focus switches to specific areas of partnership – Neuroscience, Health Workforce, Musculoskeletal Health and Mental Health.
