GPs reminded to have their say on mental health and general practice
The General Practice Mental Health Standards Collaboration (GPMHSC) has invited a selection of GPs to complete a short 10-minute survey on mental health and general practice.
The survey has been extended until Sunday 31 October.
Feedback from GPs will help the GPMHSC understand the different attitudes towards and view on the uptake of mental health training, as well as the use of relevant MBS item numbers.
The information collected from the survey will also guide the GPMHSC’s advocacy efforts on policy development and reform for general practice and mental health care.
GPs are reminded to check their email for an invitation to complete the survey, or contact the GPMHSC on 03 8699 0554 or email for more information.
