Advocating for you and supporting your goals

RACGP Membership > RACGP Membership 2023-24 > Advocating for you and supporting your goals

We’ll keep listening to you so our ongoing advocacy is shaped by your views and what matters most to you and your patients. 

In 2023, we’ll continue to fight for: 

  • access to general practice care all patients need – in person and via telehealth
  • government investment in longer consultations to create better outcomes for patients
  • funding for regular and continuous general practice care for our most vulnerable communities
  • support for coordinated care between GPs and hospitals to reduce preventable hospitalisations
  • strengthened rural general practice capacity.

To support your long-term goals, professional development and wellbeing, we’ll continue to:

  • keep you informed on changes affecting healthcare in Australia and your work in particular
  • offer relevant, high-quality education and CPD activities 
  • expand the pipeline of future GPs to alleviate workforce shortages 
  • improve training, education and Fellowship exams 
  • keep you up to date on legislative changes affecting your CPD requirements
  • support your efforts to upskill and adapt during challenging times; for example, we’ve awarded our members 75 CPD points in recognition of your extra work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
