GP Liaison Unit

Barwon Health's GP Liaison Unit (GPLU) was established to assist GPs with access to hospital services and improve communication between Barwon Health and General Practice.

Some of the programs include:

  • Development and implementation of referral and management guidelines for GPs which assist in service demand management
  • Creation of outpatient and specialist clinic referral templates
  • Facilitating communication between the hospital and GPs in the community

The GPLU Program Manager and GP Consultant are available via the dedicated GPLU Helpdesk to:

  • Assist GPs to access hospital services and correct referral pathways
  • Follow up outstanding, missing or incorrect patient documentation
  • Secure message delivery, troubleshooting and support escalation
  • Facilitate site visits
