Primary and Community Health
Our Primary and Community Health Platform steers, champions and enables innovation, integration and partnership between primary providers like GPs, the community and hospital-based-care. Its overall aim is to deliver better health outcomes for our patients.
Historically, the structures of governance and funding within Australia’s health system have made it difficult to build links between the various layers of health services and associated research hubs. Our Primary and Community Health Steering Committee is working to overcome this by bringing together GP liaison officers, academics and clinical leads, along with members of academic primary care, community health and primary health networks.
