Divisions of General Practice Program
Overview of the Divisions of General Practice Program
The purpose of the Divisions of General Practice Program (the Divisions Program) is to provide services and support to general practice at the local level, through Divisions of General Practice, to achieve health outcomes for the community that would not otherwise be achieved on an individual GP basis.
All Divisions provide core programs to address:
- prevention and early intervention;
- supporting integration and multidisciplinary care; and
- an increased focus on population health and the better management of chronic disease.
- Rural Primary Health Services Program (RPHS)
- Aged Care Access Initiative (ACAI)
- Workforce Support for Rural General Practitioners Program (WSRGP)
- Closing the Gap – Improving Indigenous Access to Mainstream Primary Care
- General Practice Immunisation Incentive Scheme (GPII)
The Divisions network comprises the Australian General Practice Network, State Based Organisations and regional Divisions of General Practice.
The value of the Divisions network is in achieving systemic improvements in local primary care that cannot be achieved by individual GPs working alone.
