Victorian Primary Care Partnership

There is anecdotal evidence that service providers and communities in the Central Hume catchment, under-utilise pharmacies in primary health care, particularly in relation to chronic conditions due to a poor awareness of their role and scope of practice. This project sought to connect the sixteen (16) local community pharmacies in Central Hume to Alpine Health, Benalla Health, Mansfield District Hospital, Northeast Health Wangaratta and Gateway Health Wangaratta. The purpose of making these connections is to enhance information access between services and the community by strengthening integration and improving communication among providers.
