The Board of the National Health Performance Authority (NHPA) is seeking to appoint an inaugural Chief Executive Officer.


The NHPA is a newly established statutory body formed as a result of the COAG National Health Reform Agreement signed by the Commonwealth and all state and territory governments with the aim of improving health outcomes and  ensuring the sustainability of the Australian health system.


It will oversee the development and production of quarterly Hospital Performance Reports for both public and private hospitals, and Healthy Communities reports by primary health care services under the new Performance and Accountability Framework.  Based in Canberra, the NHPA will have a staff of around 50.
