GPs are at the frontline of the Covid 19 pandemic.
The strength of Australia's health system is in its network of primary care physicians, decentralised and distributed throughout and within the community.
GPs have a key role in slowing the spread of Covid 19, easing the burden on the hospital system, and empowering our communities to cope with a moderately high impact pandemic.
Since 12th Feb 2020, I have been developing and refining proposals for a GP clinic and community response to this threat, in concert with local GPs, state health service (Alpine Health) and our Primary Health Network (PHN).
