We provide a suite of training and professional development opportunities for primary health care providers across the Western Sydney region.

Accreditation

We are an accredited provider of the Royal Australian College of General Practice (RACGP) Quality Improvement and Continuing Professional Development Program. We facilitate and promote networking, education and inter-professional learning opportunities for primary health care clinicians, based on locally identified needs that support improvements in the quality of patient care.

The CPD Program supports Australian GPs to maintain and improve their professional knowledge and skills in order to provide the best possible care for patients and their communities.

The RACGP 020-22 Triennium started on 1 January 2020. Visit the RACGP FAQs page and find out what you need to know about the new triennium, or call the RACGP office on 9886 4700.

Nurses work collaboratively with GPs and other members of the practice team to provide safe and quality care.
