The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission to the Independent Review of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
General practitioners (GPs) have a unique perspective on the operation of the NDIS. By providing evidence of disability and functional impact, essential care coordination, facilitation of appeals processes and support of patient health literacy, GPs play an important role in assisting patient access and navigation of the scheme. To better support patients and GP involvement in disability care and management, the RACGP has developed a set of overarching principles to improve the functioning of the NDIS.
