Divisions Network Reporting

From 1997 to 2012 PHCRIS was involved in the collection and collation of Divisions Network Reporting on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Health. The links below provide details of these reporting frameworks and the information available.

Between July 2011 and July 2012 the Australian Government's National Health Reform saw the Divisions of General Practice Network (which at the time included 108 Divisions, six State Based Organisations and the national organisation AGPN) evolve into a network of Medicare Locals. Medicare Locals are primary health care organisations established to coordinate primary health care delivery and tackle local health care needs and service gaps. For information about documents and websites that focus on the process of establishing Medicare Locals and the impact of this change on various stakeholders please visit the PHCRIS Getting Started Guide, Medicare Local.

    The Annual Survey of Divisions (ASD) was a comprehensive survey completed by all Divisions of General Practice to collect information on their membership, activities and infrastructure for the requested reporting period.
