headspace GP Workforce Pilot
June 08, 2020
Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN in conjunction with headspace Centres within the region are piloting a GP Workforce activity. The duration of the GP Workforce Pilot is to 31 December 2020 with the view to continue under a self-sustaining model where the activity is successful.
headspace is a national initiative providing tailored and holistic mental health support to young people aged 12 - 25 years old.
This pilot opportunity exists to build the relationships between local GPs and headspace Centres to provide access to primary medical care and integrated services within headspace.
The pilot involves establishing an MOU with a local general practice to release a vocationally registered GP (VRGP) with child and youth mental health experience or an interest to acquire it and a GP Registrar (the Registrar) to deliver services onsite at the local headspace Centre.
This opportunity is available in Warwick, Toowoomba or Ipswich, if your general practice is interested in being involved in the headspace GP Workforce Pilot, please complete the relevant Expressions of Interest (EOI) Form below nominating two (2) suitable GPs and one Registrar (Level 3 or 4) from your practice.
Applications close 14 June 2020
