Under the GPFirst programme, you will receive a $50 waiver on the prevailing attendance fee at either location if you are referred by a participating GP clinic.

Information for GPs

Information for GPs

GPFirst aims to encourage patients to visit their GP first instead of going to the ED if they are suffering mild-to-moderate or non-emergency conditions so they can be cared for more promptly. This will also allow emergency care teams to focus on urgent cases such as heart attacks and strokes.

GPFirst Participating Clinics are supported with:

  • List of Exclusion Criteria (non-exhaustive)
  • CME Online Asynchronous Learning (COAL) and Quarterly CMEs
