The Central and Eastern Sydney PHN acknowledge the Bidjigal, Gadigal, Wangal, Gweagal, Kameygal, and Dharawal peoples of the Eora nation as the first peoples and Traditional Custodians of our region. We acknowledge their continuing connection to land, water and community and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
CESPHN provides services for the 1.5 million individuals living in the 587km² area. This includes the areas from Bondi to the Sutherland Shire in the south, and as far west as Strathfield. The population of Lord Howe Island is also included. The number of people living in the area will reach more than 1.9 million by 2031, with the most significant increase being the number of people aged over 65 years.

Nathalie Hansen, CEO
The value of PHNs to the health system lies in their ability to coordinate care, commission services to meet gaps and build the capacity of the primary healthcare workforce.
