Welcome to the Lower Murray Medicare Local
Medicare Locals will have a number of key roles in improving primary health care services for local communities.
Medicare Locals will:
Work closely with Local Hospital Networks to make sure that primary health care services and hospitals work well together for their patients;
Plan and support local after hours face-to-face GP services;
Support the implementation of initiatives that improve the prevention and management of disease in general practice and primary health care;
Identify where local communities are missing out on services they might need and coordinate services to address those gaps;
Support local primary care providers, such as GP's, practice nurses and allied health providers, to adopt and meet quality standards, and
Be accountable to local communities to make sure services are effective and are of high quality.
