As @docclements explains - GPs, particularly in rural, regional and remote areas, could be called on for any level of disaster, including major trauma. This mobile training bus is a great initiative.

The @RACGP has announced a partnership with parkrun, encouraging more GPs to sign up as official 'parkrun practices'. Social prescribing is an opportunity to involve patients in community activities. It makes you feel like you're part of something bigger.

The @RACGP welcomes @AlboMP and @Mark_Butler_MP plan to invest $970 million in general practice care. Practices across Australia are needed by their communities more than ever before and we certainly need a helping hand. #AusVotes22 #AusVotes2022 #auspol

The @RACGP welcomes @AlboMP and @Mark_Butler_MP plan to invest $970 million in general practice care. I urge whoever forms government to go even further in boosting primary care investment. Australia needs visionary reform. #AusVotes22 #auspoll2022

As @ASheppeard notes - general practices are encouraged to sign up to become a “parkrun practice” and link up with their local parkrun event. It's a great initiative, so get involved. Social prescribing is a powerful tool for many patients. #parkrun

With just one week left to go in the election campaign, the @RACGP urges all parties to put GPs and general practice teams front and centre and promise greater investment. Practices across Australia are needed by their communities more than ever before. #Medicare #ausvotes

As I told @jason_om from @abc730 last night - GPs and general practice teams are doing a tremendous job but we have largely been forgotten about in this election campaign. That must change. #auspol #AusVotes2022 #ausvotes

Tonight I will be on @abc730 talking about why GPs and general practice teams should be front and centre in the election campaign. Whoever wins government must invest in general practice so that no patient misses out on high-quality care. #Medicare #ausvotes #auspol

Long COVID is affecting many people and must be taken seriously. As @BruceWillett told @liv_willis - GPs will be able to look after many of these patients but a significant number will need referral to a dedicated service for intensive help. #COVID19

As the @RACGPPresident says, general practice is the bedrock of the healthcare system. If medical graduates turn away from general practice, it will be to the detriment of all of us @abcmelbourne

An @ama_qld survey has found that that doctors treated at least 240 patients who had “suffered complications from misdiagnosis” by pharmacists in the UTI pilot. Today, I'm reiterating the @RACGP calls for the Govt to halt the pilot and launch an inquiry.
