What are Primary Care Partnerships?
The Victorian Primary Care Partnerships are established networks of health, local government and community services that improve the health and wellbeing of all Victorians by working together to find smarter ways to deliver health services and health promoting activities within the community. They are a transformation agent across the Victorian health and community services system, addressing challenges such as disparities and inequalities in health outcomes. PCPs have been and will continue to be an important pillar of the Victorian health system, positioning it for the future and ensuring it is sustainable for the long term.
