Description

Australia’s health system delivers some of the best outcomes in the world, and the continuing adaptability, responsiveness and skills of the primary health care workforce play a fundamental part.

The focus of the plan is on Australia’s primary health care services provided through general practices, Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS), community pharmacies, allied health services, mental health services, community health and community nursing services and dental and oral health services. The plan also focuses on the integration of primary health care with hospitals and other parts of the health system, aged care, disability care and social care systems. The actions outlined are subject to further decisions by government on detailed policy and financing.

The plan identifies 12 action areas that are grouped under 3 reform streams:

  1. Future focused primary health care
  2. Person-centred primary health care supported by funding reform
  3. Integrated care, locally delivered
