RDN operates five General Practitioner (GP) Succession Planning Groups within
the Hunter New England Central Coast, Western NSW and Murrumbidgee
Primary Health Networks (PHNs).

These groups monitor the GP workforce issues facing towns in each region in conjunction with PHNs, Local Health Districts (LHDs), GP Synergy and other stakeholders.

RDN works at a community level in towns identified and prioritised through its Health Workforce Needs Assessment to:

  • identify local workforce issues
  • work collaboratively with local stakeholders to develop solutions tailored to that community
  • assist with local community-based workforce planning.
