A Strengthening Medicare Fund was established by the Australian Government as part of the Australian Primary Health Care 10-year Plan which started in March 2022 (more info). The Strengthening Medicare Taskforce (more info) was set up to help:

  • Improves access to GPs and after-hours visits.
  • Provide a greater variety of healthcare support through greater staff education.
  • Make GP visits more affordable.
  • Better identification and treatment of complex conditions and chronic ailments.
  • Which will all help reduce pressure on Hospitals.

This is the largest grant ever offered by the Primary Health Network and is a fantastic opportunity for General Practitioners to innovate and make improvements to their practice.
