Gathering Insights into General Practice and Allied Health in western Victoria

Western Victoria Primary Health Network (WVPHN) has launched two important surveys to gauge the views of people working in general practice and allied health in our region and to clarify how we can enhance the support and training we offer.

The two region-wide surveys – What’s it like in General Practice? and What’s it like in Allied Health? – are part of our Primary Healthcare Insights project to pinpoint what’s useful and what may need improvement in the work we undertake.

Both surveys are open to clinical and non-clinical staff.

WVPHN Acting CEO Andy Giddy called on western Victoria’s primary healthcare staff to complete the survey to identify priorities and views.

“The Primary Care Insights surveys build on previous consultations undertaken by WPVHN. These include last year’s Digital Self Assessment survey, and co-design work in the mental health and alcohol and other drugs fields leading to the establishment of the Step Thru Care program,” said Mr Giddy.

“We now want to hear directly from individuals working in general practice and allied health in our region so we can garner more focused information from people working across a range of primary healthcare roles.”

“The feedback will also help us refine how we advocate on behalf of our local primary health professionals and staff.”

“WVPHN intends to undertake the survey every two years so this is a valuable opportunity for people working in general practice and allied health to let us know how we can refine our planning,” said Mr Giddy.

The survey is being independently coordinated and assessed by research company Outcome Services. Primary healthcare staff who regularly receive newsletters and updates from us will soon be directly emailed a link to the survey by Outcome Services.

Respondents will have opportunity to go in the running to win one of two Apple Watches for completing the survey.
