Today is World Family Doctor Day which serves as a reflection on the impact primary healthcare doctors have on our communities.

The day is not just about celebrating practitioners but recognising issues faced in the industry.

With the need for general practices increasing and the number of GPs predicted to fall, the industry needs to change to preserve the system’s sustainability.
