More Indigenous on GP plans

The report, which incorporates data from 206 organisations that provide care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, shows increases in the proportion of babies with their birthrate recorded, in the recording of smoking and alcohol use status, and in the number of MBS health assessments for patients over 25. 

Organisations with a small number of patients per GP performed better overall. Queensland and the Northern Territory performed best overall.
