Advocating for the PCP future

Update 3 December 2019

Following the announcement of an extension to PCP funding until 30 June 2020, KPMG were engaged to undertake a review of the PCP model across Victoria.  Data collection for the review is now complete and a report will be provided to DHHS by the end of the year. DHHS are however unable to confirm when they will communicate the finding to PCPs.

Data gathered from PCPs and other stakeholders to inform the review:

  1. Over 1000 responses were provided to the stakeholder and staff survey
  2.  4 PCP participated as in depth face to face case study sites and an additional 4 were involved in video conferences.
  3. All PCP were invited to submit local case studies
  4. Face to face interviews with a range of additional stakeholders

Thank you to all our partners and other stakeholders who took the time to participate in the review process we really appreciate your support and will keep you up to date with the outcomes of the review. All your advocacy efforts on behalf of PCPs have all been highly successful in passing on a message that support is needed to ensure local partnership thrive and provide improved health and well being outcomes for the community.

How you can help? 

Please keep sending out these messages and let us know about your advocacy efforts as they will provide important evidence for the Review.  Email Jacky at [email protected]
