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

Bone Densitometry Tests
Due to a recent high demand for Bone Densitometry tests, the Bone Densitometry Department is prioritising appointments to be only clinically urgent referrals. Appointments for routine tests and less urgent referrals are currently being rescheduled to a later date. Patients affected by this change are being contacted directly by the Bone Densitometry Department. To assist with managing the demand, referrers are asked to indicate the relative urgency of the test.
