The RACGP pre-budget submission calls on the federal government to commit funds to:
- support the implementation of the RACGP’s Vision for general practice and a sustainable healthcare system
- conduct targeted research on how better use of general practice services can reduce ED presentations, hospital admissions and overall health expenditure
- address disparities in remuneration and benefits between hospital-based doctors and GP registrars to ensure the sustainability of the future GP workforce
- fully fund the implementation of the National Rural Generalist Pathway.
