2.1 Scope of Evaluation

This evaluation was undertaken for the GP Super Clinics established between 2007 and 2008. It focused on three aspects of the GP Super Clinics Program:
  • Implementation: the administration of the Program by the Department of Health and Ageing
  • Establishment: the planning and construction of the 36 GP Super Clinics across 37 localities established in the 2007-2008 tranche
  • Operations: service delivery in the seven GP Super Clinics which were operational for a minimum of six months prior to the commencement of the evaluation
The evaluation is focused on the GP Super Clinics Program 2007-2008 as implemented by the Department of Health and Ageing and the establishment and operations of the GP Super Clinics from the perspectives of Clinic Directors, clinicians and importantly patients. It is not an evaluation or an assessment of the policy which guided the GP Super Clinics Program.
