Overview

Medicare Locals are a key part of the Australian Government’s national health reforms. There are 61 medicare locals across Australia, all of whom share a goal of driving improvements in the delivery of primary health care services for local communities.

Medicare Locals work with a range of health services including primary health care providers such as local GPs, nurses and allied professionals; hospitals and aged care; and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health organizations.

Medicare Locals are primarily funded by the Department of Health though each Medicare Local determines its own resourcing and infrastructure development.
