GoShare Education Platform

The Western Sydney Primary Health Network (WSPHN) is pleased to announce a new innovative project GoShare, a customised patient education and content platform for all GPs and health professionals in western Sydney.

GoShare supports health care professionals, to educate and empower their patients to play a more active role in their health care. The tool is easy to use and enables health professionals to provide health and wellness information to patients or carers via SMS or email.

Hosting hundreds of videos and thousands of information sheets and resources, GoShare gives you access to credible, evidence-based resources such as patient and carer stories about managing illness.

Developed in partnership with health experts, these resources are designed to complement face-to-face consultations, building the knowledge, skills and confidence of patients and encourage self-management. The evidence-based content is easily tailored to the needs of a patient in a variety of formats, accommodating a wide range of health literacy levels and learning styles.

Practice managers should have received an invitation to register their practice for GoShare. Once registered, they can customise information and invite GPs, nurses and allied health staff from your practice to register. Please also check your junk mail if your invitation isn't in your Inbox.

For more information on GoShare or to receive an invitation to register your practice please contact

Launch of Thriving Families

Thriving Families NSW is an initiative of Their Futures Matter (TFM), the NSW Government’s landmark reform to deliver improved outcomes for vulnerable children, young people and families.

Thriving Families NSW is for vulnerable young families who have identified risk factors and an absence of protective factors, which in combination, lead to poorer outcomes for young parents and/or their children.

For more information, contact Sarah Radburn on 9881 1200 or via email
