In February 2023, the Commonwealth funded Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program transferred to the GP Colleges (Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM)).
The General Practice Workforce Planning and Prioritisation (GP WPP) Program has been created to support GP College-led general practice training through the provision of robust, independent evidence-based information on planning and prioritisation of GP Registrar placements to meet GP workforce needs.
Your experience and knowledge will be critical to aid GCPHN to help create information on planning and prioritisation throughout 2023-25. This information will help inform GP Registrar placement decisions by the RACGP and the ACRRM to meet GP workforce needs and training capacity.
GCPHN will contact practices to undertake stakeholder forums throughout the Gold Coast to test prioritisation information and foster collaboration with relevant stakeholders. Your support for the Program will enhance the ability of the reports to integrate the data, insights and expertise.
GCPHN will host several stakeholder engagement sessions for the National GP Workforce Planning and Prioritisation Program (WPP) to help shape the outlook of GP Registrar placement on the Gold Coast.
Practice Managers and GPs are invited to separate forums to discuss the WPP Program, its scope and to gather information to inform the ongoing reports that will be submitted. Once the reports have been created, a combined online feedback session will present the findings to the group to give the opportunity for discussion.
