AGPT for GP practices

Supporting member practices

We’re transitioning the AGPT program to a college-led model. We’re committed to listening to GP practices and helping them provide high-quality care to the communities they support.

Information about the new nationally consistent payments:

GP Training will be administrated by the colleges from February 2023. Over the next six months existing RTOs will arrange placements for registrars in Term 1 2023.

The RACGP is mindful that the processes, resources,  placement infrastructure, staffing, relationships and contracts between existing RTOs and training practices (practice managers, supervisors and registrars), remain in place until 1 February 2023.

As RTOs are contracted, funded and resourced with the staff to complete administration through to 1 February 2023, all of the usual processes in place for practices and registrars will continue.  Please see the attachment for further information on Practice Agreements for 2023.

 

The Government Superannuation Guarantee increases from 10% to 10.5% on 1 July. Superannuation payments to GP registrars must reflect this change from 1 July.
