The Victorian Government is funding 25 new GP-led Priority Primary Care Centres (PPCCs) to improve access to primary care, particularly in the after-hours period, and ease pressure on emergency departments.
The PPCCs will open after hours, partner with emergency departments and provide care for people with conditions that require urgent attention but not an emergency response – for example, mild infections, fractures and burns. They will also offer pathology and imaging services.
Commissioning is already underway for sites in Latrobe and West Gippsland.
Practices in the Latrobe and Baw Baw Local Government Areas (LGA) are invited to apply through an expression of interest (EOI) via our online platform FOLIO to open Priority Primary Care Centres (PPCCs) in their local areas.
The EOI is open now and will close at 5pm on Wednesday 26 October 2022.
General Practices in the Latrobe and Baw Baw Local Government Areas (LGA) are now invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) via our online platform FOLIO to open Priority Primary Care Centres (PPCCs). The EOI Application Form is available here and additional information on the EOI can be accessed here
