This shift will improve patient health outcomes, reduce chronic disease complications and lead to overall cost savings for the healthcare system.
Changes to the current system must not impact a GP’s ability to set fees that reflect the value of the services they provide.
Recommended enhancements to existing payments and new payments are summarised in Table 2.
