General Practice: Health of the Nation
The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) is Australia’s largest professional general practice organisation, representing 90% of the general practice profession.
The General Practice: Health of the Nation 2017 report draws on specifically commissioned research involving more than 1300 RACGP Fellows from all parts of Australia, as well as information from the MABEL (Medicine in Australia: Balancing Employment and Life) Survey and a range of government publications, to provide a unique overview of the general practice sector.
The report focuses on a range of key areas including:
- patient access to general practice
- the role of the general practitioner
- the general practice workforce
In addition to providing information at a point in time, in future years General Practice: Health of the Nation will track trends, highlighting changes across the general practice sector from both a patient and a GP perspective.
