Evaluation of the GP Super Clinics Program 2007-2008

7.5 Primary Health Care System Learnings

Page last updated: 2012

In addition to the GP Super Clinics there is a range of other reforms and investment in general practice and primary health care, presently in existence:

  • Establishing Medicare Locals across Australia, to work with the full spectrum of general practice, allied health and community health care providers, improve access to care and drive integration among services
  • Ensuring that communities will have access to GP advice and services after hours, with the capacity to put Australians in contact with GP services in their communities when needed
Some of the learnings identified in this evaluation are not specific to the GP Super Clinics Program and are thus outside the scope of this evaluation. However, they have implications for the broader primary health care system and thus have potential to be considered in the context of these reforms.
