CEO Report - September


We are back to that time of year where we ask local GPs to consider mentoring students as part of the clinical placements program run by Bond University, Griffith University and Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN). Students from both Bond and Griffith Universities will need placing for 2020 and having that hands-on experience is a critical part of their development in becoming a GP. If you are a GP or work in a general practice, I strongly encourage you to consider this opportunity.
The My health for life program has released their latest program dates. The program is free and is for eligible people who want to improve their health and reduce their risk of developing chronic disease. General practices can access referral templates on HealthyGC (scroll down to prevention) and more information on the program, including upcoming dates and local providers, can be accessed here.
Practices can use the CAT Plus tool to find patients who may be eligible for the My health for life program. To do this, please use the My health for life recipes’ found on the PenCS website.
September plays host to a number of important causes including Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, Dementia Action Week and World Suicide Prevention Day.
In light of World Suicide Prevention Day, which fell earlier in the week on 10 September, health professionals are reminded that the Gold Coast has a variety of mental health services available to support patients with, or at risk of, mild mental illness or severe mental illness. Details of local programs, including those supported by GCPHN, can be found at
