GPV is a state level organisation working with Medicare Locals and Divisions of General Practice to better integrate general practice, other primary health care providers and the broader state health system to meet the healthcare needs of the Victorian Community.
Established in 1998, GPV was funded under the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA) Divisions of General Practice Program to act as the peak body for Divisions of General Practice in Victoria.
In 2011, the Commonwealth and state and territory governments signed the National Health Reform Agreement, which introduced Medicare Locals and redirected funding from the Divisions of General Practice program to Medicare Locals.
Building on the work of Divisions, Medicare Locals are primary health care organisations established to co-ordinate primary health care delivery by linking up services and addressing local health care needs and service gaps.
Funded primarily by the Victorian Department of Health and the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing, GPV offers Medicare Locals and Divisions representation, advocacy, support, advice, information and resources with a view to strengthening primary health care in Victoria.
GPV also offers state level organisations a mechanism through which to communicate and build relationships with Victorian Medicare Locals.
