Strategy, Vision and Values

The PCP Strategy is funded by the Victorian government to improve the health and wellbeing of community members by strengthening relationships between primary care providers across a catchment area so they are able to implement improved service coordination, integrated health promotion and planning and joint programs.
Aims of the strategy include to:
  • Improve the experience and outcomes for people who use primary care services.
  • Reduce the preventable use of hospital, medical and residential services through a greater emphasis on health promotion programs, early intervention and chronic disease management.
  • Develop service coordination links between primary care providers to enable early needs identification and service planning, and effective and efficient referral and care coordination between GP’s and other healthcare agencies.
  • Plan and deliver more effective health promotion programs and services, underpinned by a social model of health.
  • Increase community participation in needs identification, and service development and implementation.

The Central West Gippsland PCP is a partnership of (currently) 24 health and community agencies who are working together in the municipalities of Baw Baw and Latrobe.
