Expression of Interest

RACF Initiative: Psychological Treatment Services for people
with Mental Illness

Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from residential aged care facilities (RACFs) who would like to access psychological services for their residents.   

GCPHN is inviting up to 10 RACFs to participate in the first stage of the roll out of the new service which will commence from mid to late January 2019.  ​

GCPHN has received funding from the Department of Health to commission psychological services for people with mental illness who reside in RACFs. This will enable residents of these facilities with mild to moderate mental illness to access mental health services similar to those available in the community under Medicare arrangements.  

Consideration of the following will be made when selecting the RACFs to participate: 
  • Existing service delivery or access to psychological services in the RACF.
  • Ability, experience and skills of staff to identify suitable residents.
  • Current level of general practitioner (GP) engagement with the RACF and willingness of GPs to participate in referring residents to the service.
DATE CHANGE: please note an information session will be held at GCPHN on Thursday 10 January 2019,  4.30pm - 6.30pm. This will provide the opportunity for any queries to be discussed, and for the PHN to provide an overview of the implementation process including referrals to the service.

Please RSVP to the briefing session by Monday 7 January via email to

Submissions must be made no later than 5.00pm, Monday 14 January 2019. Respondents will be notified of the outcome of their response, in writing via email, upon a decision being made by GCPHN.
