Studies show that about 60% of all children in Victoria have seen a GP (General Practitioner) in the past six months, making the GP a child's most common healthcare provider.
GPs are also the usual gatekeeper to the RCH - at least 70% of RCH referrals come via a GP. Furthermore, when we discharge from the RCH we are usually sending our patients back to the ongoing care of their GP.
This makes it essential for us to increase our understanding of the role of primary care and how we can work better with GPs for safer, more effective and efficient ongoing care for children throughout Victoria.
