Western Victoria Primary Health Network supports the Practice Manager's Network in our region, providing opportunities for networking, mentoring and education.

The Practice Manager Network Meetings are held quarterly in each sub region to deliver educational information sessions that focus on key practice issues and to facilitate the dissemination of information on new programs, or changes to existing programs offered by Western Victoria Primary Health Network and its key partners. Practice Managers from Allied Health and Specialist practices are welcome to attend.

The networks are also supported through the Practice Manager's email list, which is used to disseminate urgent information.

Geelong Otway

Geelong Otway general practice and practice managers are supported with an opportunity to pose a query to their peers via the Practice Manager Community of Practice online forum coming soon. Contact your assigned Primary Care Consultant to learn how to become involved.

General enquiries are welcome.

Geelong/Otway general practice and practice manager email queries

The purpose of the monthly email query was to provide general practice and practice manager colleagues, the opportunity to pose queries to each other and have de-identified responses returned. The email query activity ceased in August 2017 and is being replaced soon with the Practice Manager Community of Practice open to practice managers in general practice and allied health.
