COPHE aims to increase the access of affordable and appropriate primary health care to poorly-served communities or client groups by supporting local community groups or non-government organisations to develop such services.
There is evidence that many groups within the community do not have adequate access to primary healthcare services. These include some geographical communities with low numbers of General Practitioners (GPs) as well as some population groups who find it hard to get the kind of care they need. COPHE also undertakes financial analyses of primary health services/GP practices to assist them to be sustainable and develop new models of multidisciplinary care.
Welcome to this new edition of our occasional newsletter. This edition has been solely dedicated to Health Care Homes.
E-News - January 2017
COPHE is planning a webinar “Opportunities for joining up Aged Care and Primary Care” in collaboration with the Council on the Ageing (COTA). It aims to inform aged care providers about how the primary health care system works and how they might link to it, or develop their own services, to improve access to appropriate primary health care for their clients.
