Update and reminder - DoH consultation forums on redesigning the PIP
The Department of Health (DoH) has begun public consultations on redesigning the Practice Incentives Program (PIP) to simplify the current incentives and to introduce a new Quality Improvement Incentive. GPs are invited to provide comments to the AMA for inclusion in its submission, and/or see below for a list of dates and locations to attend a consultation forum.
Other ways that GPs can provide input to the DoH consultation include participating in a forum or webcast, or responding to an anonymous questionnaire. Upcoming consultation forums will be held on the following dates and locations:
- Sydney - Wednesday 9 November
- Brisbane - Thursday 10 November
- Adelaide - Monday 14 November
- Canberra (combined forum and webcast) - Wednesday 16 November.
Two forums are planned for each of the session days, each will be of 3 hours duration, and stakeholders have the choice of attending a morning or afternoon session. Stakeholders are invited to register for the forums via the Department’s consultation hub.
