The Victorian Government is yet to confirm funding for PCPs beyond December 2019. Can we afford to lose this valuable platform?

For almost 20 years PCPs have brought together local organisations to achieve better health and social outcomes for their communities. The 28 PCPs across Victoria connect more than 850 organisations from health, education, community services and local government with their local communities.

Over 40 organisations connected through Southern Melbourne Primary Care Partnership in just the last 12 months to address family violence, elder abuse, indigenous access, health literacy, healthy eating, consumer engagement, service integration and more.

SMPCP is calling on our supporters to join the campaign for funding renewal and avoid losing a partnership platform which demonstrates significant return on investment.
