GP Liaison Unit

About the 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.

Located at University Hospital Geelong, the GPLU works closely with Western Victoria Primary Health Network to ensure all programs and activities meet the needs of GPs and ultimately enhance patient care.

Some of the programs include:

  • Development and implementation of referral and management guidelines for GPs which assist in Outpatient demand management
  • Creation of outpatient referral templates
  • Assist GPs in accessing hospital services
  • Facilitating communication between the hospital and GPs in the community
