We are sitting down with them every month—the college of rural medicine among them, the rural health commissioner among them—to talk about ways in which we can improve access to general practice across the community: in the cities, in rural towns, in remote communities. Also in the October budget we put in place a rural general practice package to make sure that innovative models of care are being trialled across rural general practice and that there are more training placements under the John Flynn program. We have a priority of rebuilding general practice. All the others have is cheap politics.
