The Rural Plan for Gippsland is a comprehensive summary of the work being undertaken in primary healthcare in the region. It is an impressive contribution that everyone involved should be proud of. This plan provides an analysis of primary healthcare needs of the Gippsland community, illustrates how EVGPT will work cooperatively to actively facilitate improved targeting and expansion of practice recruitment and comprehensive healthcare provision, and much more.  We hope that this plan will assist our numerous partners and stakeholders in continuing the excellent work being done in primary healthcare.  To access the PDF, visit the digital platform here.

We are committed to the continuous improvement in the training of doctors in the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program. Each year, the Australian Government commissions an external research company to conduct a survey of GP registrars to gauge the level of satisfaction with their training, RTOs and career progression. This year’s survey will again be administered to all eligible AGPT registrars by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER). The survey will be open on June 28 and run for four weeks. Registrars, please monitor your email for an invitation to complete the survey and we strongly encourage you to participate. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and the results enable the Department of Health to monitor the performance of the program and help bring emerging issues to the attention of the Department and other GP training stakeholders The 2020 AGPT National Registrar Survey (NRS) Final Report is available to download from the Department of Health website. See a summary of EV’s 2020 NRS results, and previous years for comparison, here.
