Who We Are

Wentworth Healthcare is a not for profit organisation that works to improve health for the local community. 

Wentworth Healthcare is the provider of the Nepean Blue Mountains Primary Health Network (NBMPHN) programme, which is dedicated to supporting the right health services for our local community.

Our role is to identify what health services are needed in the Nepean and Blue Mountains communities and how we can bridge any gaps there may be in the provision of these services.

We do this by working with and providing support to General Practice, other primary health care providers and the many health and non-health stakeholders across the region.

Our region covers the four local government areas of:

  • Blue Mountains
  • Hawkesbury
  • Lithgow
  • Penrith

NBMPHN has the same boundaries as the Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District.
