"We're working to improve health care in our community through strong general practice"

GPpartners is an independent membership organisation for General Practitioners (GPs) in the northern and western suburbs of Brisbane.

Our advocacy role promotes General Practice as the major focus of primary health care. We advocate to make sure General Practice is considered in local and national health system policy, planning and implementation. We work to improve liaison and association between General Practitioners and the relevant parties in the health system.

We have a program of education events that are relevant to general practice, providing an opportunity to connect and network with other GPs.

    From the COO. April 2018

    Sorry for the gap in transmission but GPpartners Board has been busy working on our new strategy. Our ethos of 'Advancing General Practice' is being put into practice. By helping GPs in their day to day business, we improve GPs lives and consequently patient outcomes. GPpartners has been and will continue to provide education but this area is becoming more contested with the Pharmaceutical Companies, Private Hospitals, larger specialist groups and the PHN locally as well as all the online education, Private Medical Education and National Conferences. GPpartners is working with a local accounting firm to bring you an evening to help with your financial planning, self managed superannuation, business accounting, taxation and mortgages. These are the areas GPs tend to put aside until the end of the tax year approaches or your BAS is due. You are invited to come on the 2nd of May to learn more and to put in place some financial planning ideas to improve your financial health. GPpartners is partnering with GPpartners Australia who are based in Adelaide. (They did ask if they could share our name.) GPpartners Australia is setting up a company to support start up companies who will directly improve the working of Primary Health Care and General Practice. This is an exciting opportunity to be there at grass roots identifying problems and subsequent solutions. This fits with our mission of 'Advancing General Practice'. GPpartners has a project that we would like to advance through this company. It is early days but from our initial investigations it seems to tick the boxes not just for General Practice but other areas of Primary Health Care and Specialist Services. I am afraid it is a secret for the moment but in the near future we will be coming to practices to explain the concept and offer Foundation Membership. GPpartners Board Directors feel that we are heading in the right direction and with kindred spirits in Adelaide with their GP network and experience, are in for exciting times.
