About Us

| Supporting General Practice in Australia
AGPN has existed since the mid 90's as a representative body for general practitioners in Australia. We were the national body for the divisions of general practice until a change to local medicare networks in the early 2010s. Since then we have continued to operate as a not for profit advocating for general practice and as a health promotion charity focusing on working with GPs to prevent disease.

In the last few years, we have:
-> collaborated with the Immunisation Coalition to introduce the Meningococcal B vaccination to the SA childhood immunisation schedule
-> worked with GP clinics and nursing homes in SA to reduce the impact of Influenza outbreaks
> trialed Point of Care testing processes in general practice to provide rapid treatment for Influenza, COVID-19 and RSV
-> national advocacy to promote collaboration between breast screening programs and GPs to increase participation rates
-> exploring paths to use technology to assist Alzheimer’s patients and their carers so that they can remain at home for longer, this is of particular focus for rural patients.

| Community First
We are passionate about empowering general practices to thrive and deliver exceptional healthcare services to their communities. Our ultimate goal is to create a sustainable healthcare ecosystem, where every general practice has the resources it needs to provide comprehensive and high-quality care to patients.

Advocacy & Policy

As advocates for quality healthcare, AGPN actively engages with policymakers and stakeholders to influence positive change. By representing the voice of general practice, we strive to shape policies and regulations that support the needs and concerns of practices and their patients. Together, we can drive advancements that lead to a more efficient, accessible, and patient-centric healthcare system.
