WA Primary Health Alliance shapes, strengthens and sustains a health system that works for people. In the wake of COVID-19, we are working to ensure that GPs can keep delivering essential care and that consumer health is not put at risk over concerns about seeing a doctor.
Across WA, GPs are reporting a reduction in visits by patients who would normally attend for regular health issues, chronic conditions, mental health issues, screening, prescriptions and support. This may be putting people at greater risk of delayed diagnosis for serious health problems, or an interruption of care for mental health or chronic disease.
The See Your GP campaign seeks to remind consumers and carers of the importance of regular medical appointments and reassure them of the availability of safe, essential health care.
