Care Plans

Patients with a chronic disease (a condition that has been or likely to be present for 6mths or longer) can be managed with a GP Management Plan (GPMP). These Care Plans usually consist of one initial long appointment per year and up to 3 review appointments throughout the year. As well as planning for your care, these appointments can be used for renewal of referrals and prescriptions that are related to your chronic disease.

As part of this service, referrals to Allied Health Professionals – such as Dieticians, Podiatrists and Physiotherapists are included. This is known as a Team Care Arrangement. These referrals entitle you to 5 (in total) Allied Health visits per year (10 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders).
