Our GP Liaison Unit works to enhance partnerships between hospitals and primary care providers to get better patient outcomes.
We’re supporting a wide range of projects including:
- Clinical Prioritisation Criteria
- Improvements to secondary care correspondence
- Educational opportunities.
Clinical prioritisation criteria
Clinical prioritisation critera (CPC) tools support practitioners when referring patients to Specialist Outpatient services.
Secondary care correspondence improvement initiatives
We’re working with divisions and specialties to complete better quality discharge summaries and outpatient correspondence in faster time.
Our pilot projects in gynaecology and orthopaedics resulted in outpatient correspondence being sent out mostly within 48 hours, a significant improvement.
We work with stakeholders including Gold Coast Primary Health Network to develop and deliver educational activities.
These include Practice Based Small Group Learning, inter-disciplinary training using Allied Health Specialist Clinics and continuing professional development.
The GP Liaison Unit is the first point of contact for clinicians for suggestions for communication improvements or specific concerns.
Advising patients on clinical trials
If a patient is interested in participating in a clinical trial, they may want to discuss this with you. Access our clinical trials page to read about our active clinical trials that may be relevant to your patients.
