Rural Primary Health Service

The aim of the Rural Primary Health Service (RPHS) is to increase effective management of chronic conditions or chronic condition risks in regional and remote communities. This is accomplished by providing additional allied health sessions to eligible patients at no cost.


The program’s objectives are to:
• increase the number of people who are effectively managing their chronic condition (or chronic condition risk) in underserviced regional or remote communities.
• increase equitable access to sustainable primary healthcare services in underserviced regional or remote communities

Patient eligibility

People eligible to be referred into the RPHS program must have:
– chronic condition or
– a chronic condition risk.

For people with a chronic condition, a GP will need to refer into the program by determining whether a person is eligible for Chronic Disease Management services. People on a care plan are eligible to receive two additional sessions or unlimited group sessions under the RPHS program. People at risk of a chronic condition are eligible for 2 sessions or unlimited group sessions. The service they access must correspond to the identified risk factor/s.
