Why join

The PHO Alliance is a low cost, high value membership organisation with a focus on community and patient benefit.

Joining the PHO Alliance gives members a stronger national voice and access to a shared consortia approach to common interests and issues. We seek to prevent the need to 'reinvent the wheel' in every locality across the country.

Each member benefits from the knowledge and skills shared across the PHO Alliance but retains their autonomy and ability to act independently

Strong alliance with national representative organisations across the sector
Contract negotiation through national PSAAP forum (Full members only)
Performance development support programme
Professional networking and peer support

Regular member meetings and leadership forums
Regular communications and briefings

Our membership categories

We have 3 membership categories with varying eligibility criteria and member benefits as follows:

FULL MEMBERSHIP: available to any organisation (including PHOs) which holds a primary health care contract, or which is a membership based organisation representing members/providers who hold a primary health care contract, and which agrees with, directly supports and aligns with the objectives and charitable purpose of the PHO Alliance.

AFFILIATE MEMBERSHIP: available to the same organisations as for Full membership, but may be considered where the member organisation wishes to maintain their own independence in respect of national advocacy and representation (including PSAAP negotiations).

ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP: available to non-PHO organisations whose purpose directly supports and aligns with the objectives and charitable purpose of the PHO Alliance and has a material role to play in improving health outcomes across New Zealand (e.g. NGOs).
