This includes after-hours GP home visiting services, Medical Deputising Services (MDS), and Nurse Practitioner owned or led primary care practices in the area.
Requests from Allied Health will be prioritised as per guidance from the Department of Health. This will be a one-off allocation per practice pending approval.
These are not intended for the general public or for sale.
