Primary health care for people in the community (i.e. not in-patients of hospitals) is usually provided by General Practitioners (GPs) funded by incentives and grants through the State Government Department of Health) and the Australian Government Department of Health.

The After Hours Program aims to:

  • increase the efficiency and effectiveness of AH primary care for patients, particularly those with limited access to health services
  • improve access to AH primary care through effective planning, co-ordination and support for population-based after-hours primary care
  • improve the availability of AH general practice services through working collaboratively with general practitioners.
