Local hospital network (LHN) reports
This website contains monthly reports published by the Administrator of the National Health Funding Pool detailing National Health Reform (NHR) funding by state, territory and Commonwealth governments provided to local hospital networks throughout Australia. Monthly reports of NHR funding are provided at a national level, state or territory level, and local hospital network level within each state and territory.
The monthly reports provided at local hospital network level show NHR payments for a selected local hospital network within a state or territory for the current month.
NHR payments are when NHR funding in a state pool account or state managed fund is paid out of the state pool account by the Administrator, or is paid out of the state managed fund by the state or territory.
A local hospital network is an organisation that provides public hospital services in accordance with the National Health Reform Agreement. A local hospital network can contain one or more hospitals, and is usually defined as a business group, geographical area or community. Every Australian public hospital is administered by a local hospital network.
