General Practice: Health of the Nation

An annual insight into the state of general practice

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) is Australia’s largest professional general practice organisation, representing 90% of the general practice profession. The General Practice: Health of the Nation report draws on specifically commissioned research involving more than 1100 RACGP Fellows from all parts of Australia, as well as information from the MABEL (Medicine in Australia: Balancing Employment and Life) Survey and a range of government publications, to provide a unique overview of the general practice sector.
