Gippsland Region Public Health Unit

 

About us

The Gippsland Region Public Health Unit (GRPHU) is led by Latrobe Regional Hospital.

GRPHU is responsible for managing and responding to public health issues in Gippsland including West Gippsland, South Gippsland, Latrobe Valley, Central Gippsland and East Gippsland – with a combined population of more than 271,000 people.

The current focus includes end-to-end COVID-19 contact tracing, case and contact follow-up and support, as well as outbreak management with the aim of building strong relationships with community partners, general practitioners and other hospital-based services.

GRPHU links closely with the Department of Health to provide a state-wide system of public health delivery and oversight.

Our focus is to:

  • Strengthen the public health response to COVID-19
  • Be closer to, and more engaged with, our local communities
  • Provide more efficient care and public health functions, such as testing, contact tracing, case and outbreak management
  • Rapidly respond to new cases and outbreaks

Your gift will keep on giving this festive season

We don't want you to travel to Melbourne for healthcare if you don't have to. That's why we're working hard to provide our specialists with great facilities and the latest equipment.

Our neurology service is seeking your help to purchase EEG equipment to measure electricial activity in the brain. It can be used to diagnose conditions such as seizures, tumours or head injuries. You may be surprised to learn there is no permanent EEG machine in Gippsland. Let's change that!

Click on the Make A Donation link or contact LRH Fundraising on 5173 8577. Have a safe and happy festive season!
