Are you interested in becoming a Medicare Local? – 22 Feb 2011

The call for applications

From the YourHealth site:

“A key component of the Australian Government’s National Health Reforms is the establishment of a new nation-wide network of Medicare Locals to be locally responsive, to address local needs, to improve access to services and to drive integration across the health care system.

The Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing now invites applications to establish Medicare Locals across Australia.

Approximately 15 Medicare Locals will commence in July 2011. A further 15 will commence in January 2012, with the remainder starting in July 2012.

The first group of Medicare Locals will be drawn from high performing Divisions of General Practice, preferably working in consortia with other high performing organisations with the advanced capacity needed to lead primary health care reforms in their catchment, and who have the capacity to take on the roles and functions expected under the new arrangements.

The subsequent groups of Medicare Locals will build on the expertise and capacity of existing primary care organisations, particularly Divisions of General Practice as well as other primary health care organisations and service providers.

Applications for Medicare Locals to commence in July 2011 close on 5 April 2011.

Applications for Medicare Locals to commence in 2012 close on 19 July 2011.
