The Northern Region GP Council is a subcommittee of the Northern Health Network that provides a forum for GPs in the northern region to raise issues that affect General Practice and its ability to provide effective primary health care in the community.
The committee provides GP input, advocacy and linkage into and across other health care organisations (National, State, Local Government and Non-Government). The committee also ensure there is adequate GP representation on various panels and committees, acting as the conduit for GPs across the region.
The NRGPC Committee has 8 members elected by their peers who represent a broad range of expertise and interests across General Practice. The committee consists of three members representing the north east and three representing the north.
All GPs north of the Torrens River are automatically members of the Northern Region GP Council (NRGPC), unless they choose to opt out.
