EMPHN is refreshing our list of primary care providers who are willing to provide assistance during an emergency/pandemic response.
During crisis responses, Primary Health Networks may be asked to engage primary care providers who are willing to assist in an emergency response. This could be as an individual or a whole-of-practice basis. These requests may come from stakeholders such as the Victorian Department of Health, the Commonwealth Department of Health, hospitals, local governments and others.
‘Emergency’ in this case is a broad definition and could be a natural disaster, accident or as part of a pandemic response.
We are inviting GPs, GP registrars, practice nurses, practice managers and pharmacists to complete a short survey to register their interest in assisting in an emergency response.
