Next steps

By improving existing funding arrangements and introducing further supports to introduce innovative models of care in general practice, the RACGP believes that significant savings would be achieved for funders, patients and providers.

The RACGP looks forward to working with all levels of government to collaboratively develop and introduce appropriate models for improving healthcare in the interests of all Australians.
