I was having this dicussion with my husband the other day who is a paramedic. I said to him they need to build big Medical Centres attached to the hospitals where esentially they still maybe triaged at Emergency but if not an emergency situation they can then move the patient onto the medical  centre so they are still being seen but not taking up Emergency departments.

Why the contribution is important

I think my idea is important as people will continually use the Emergency department and ambulances even though education has been put out there through media etc. I think this is a way we can resolve the issue.

    Is this ‘free’. If so how? To bulk bill these patients the service would need extra funding to Medicare rebates. This leads to the equity of that funding with competition to local small business GPs.
