Last updated 18 May 2023

The RACGP has launched its strategy for the next three years (2022-2025) which provides direction for the college and primary health care in Australia.

It was developed through more than 12 months of collaboration with members and staff. It responds to the external challenges facing the healthcare system and general practice. It considers the expectations of our funders, from members and government to philanthropics. And it directs our energy towards delivering what our members expect of us, so they can deliver for people in Australia.

Our purpose – the reason we exist

Ensure a strong General Practice profession that keeps Australia healthy

Our goal – what we want to achieve
Australia’s health outcomes improve because every person in Australia, regardless of their postcode or their vulnerabilities, can – and does – regularly see a GP



Career attractiveness


More doctors see GP specialisation as their first choice of medical career


Optimal coverage


All communities in Australia have access to well‑trained, competent GPs who deliver high-quality, evidence‑based care


Whole‑person care

Supportive regulatory settings
