Eastern Metropolitan Region
Metropolitan regions of the department are structured around distinct geographic catchments that enhance our ability to focus on population health need. Significantly, in the Eastern regional area, teams have boundaries that align with Medicare Locals and each comprise several local government areas. Eastern Metropolitan Region area teams are:
- Inner East Team: Integrating planning in the local government areas of Boroondara, Manningham, Whitehorse and Monash.
- Outer East Team: Integrating planning in the local government areas of Knox, Maroondah and Yarra Ranges.
