As the Referral Information Roadshow draws to a close, General Practice Liaison Officer Dr Danika Fietz and the GP Liaison Unit (GPLU) would like to take this opportunity to thank all general practices who have welcomed our team into your practices and to those who are actively using Clinical Prioritisation Criteria
(CPC) and the latest referral template suite
Over the last nine months, the GPLU have successfully visited 170 general practices across the Gold Coast which has helped build reputable relationships between the local Hospital and Health Service and Primary Care. Practice visits have played a vital part in the roadshow providing the opportunity for GPs and practice staff to raise questions regarding the health service and allowed for collaborative engagement to improve the quality, safety and experience for patients and their carers.
Due to the uptake and commitment from GPs, we have seen a considerable surge in the number of referrals being submitted on the most recent and correct referral template suite; equating to 80% of our overall referrals received within the Bookings and Referrals Centre.
As we continue to move towards improved communications and engagement, please direct all patient related queries to the Complex Care Team on 1300 00 4242.
