Primary plans to increase its GP workforce by 45%
Primary Health Care says it has jettisoned dozens of low-quality GPs and now hopes to drive recruitment by becoming a “workplace of choice” for doctors.
Under a plan to increase its full-time equivalent GP workforce by 45% within three years, the company says it is raising $250 million to fund recruitment and upgrades to its medical centres.
According to its annual report published on Monday, it took on a company-record of 159 new GPs across its 73 bulk-billing medical centres over the last financial year. But it also saw 139 GPs depart.
