Victoria's Primary Care Partnership (PCP) strategy brings together local health and human service providers who work together within voluntary alliances to improve access to services and provide continuity of care for people in their community. PCP partner organisations focus on better coordination among services, management of chronic disease management, integrated prevention and health promotion, and strong partnerships.
Victoria’s 28 PCPs involve approximately 600 organisations, including hospitals, community health services, Primary Health Networks, local governments, mental health services, drug treatment services and disability services.
