Investing in general practice
We are investing more than $3 million to support general practice to provide services to patients in our region and launching our General Practice Support Program to strengthen, support and partner with general practices to focus on practice quality and business sustainability.
Twelve-month funding packages will be available to general practices for care coordination services for patients with chronic illness, alcohol screening and brief interventions, rostered GP after hours networks, and low intensity mental health services for children.
