About Us

The South Coast Prevention Team is a result of a strong commitment by Bass Coast Health, Gippsland Southern Health Service and South Gippsland Hospital to work collectively across the sub-region with pooled health promotion resources. This model provides clearer policy direction and delivers better alignment of prevention work to the broader health agenda across the sub-region.
