Annual Survey of Divisions (ASD) : 1993-2012

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. For information about the process of establishing Medicare Locals, their function and the impact of this change on various stakeholders please visit the Medicare Local Guide - therefore comparing Divisions data after 2010-11 reporting period should be done with caution.

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

Divisions were surveyed every year since 1993-1994, except for the financial year 1996-1997. The Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing contracted PHCRIS to conduct the ASD from the financial year 1997-1998 through to the final ASD, financial year 2011-2012.

We take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank all the Divisions of General Practice who participated in this annual survey for the 20 years it had been operating.
