Connecting health professionals across the community


RDGP was established as the Riverland Division of General Practice Inc under the Commonwealth Government’s Divisions of General Practice program in 1994 as an independent, membership based organisation.   Since that time it has evolved into a Primary Health Care organisation with a focus on providing integrated and coordinated locally focused and responsive services in line with locally identified health needs.  RDGP supports its membership – the Primary Health Care workforce including GPs, Specialists, Nurses and Allied Health Professionals – to enhance the patient journey and improve patient care.Current funding from both government and non-government sources enables RDGP to focus on targeted groups within the community including:

  • Aboriginal people, through Closing the Gap Riverland supporting access to mainstream services and chronic disease management
  • Those experiencing mental health issues by providing counseling and group work responses
  • Young people as the lead agency for headspace Berri, addressing general health, mental health, education, training and employment, and alcohol and other drugs issues
  • Engaging with the broader community to promote and encourage healthy lifestyle choices.

Supports provided to the Primary Health Care workforce focus on:

  • Facilitating Continuing Professional Education for the medical, nursing and allied health professional workforce.
  • Providing social and professional networking opportunities that contribute to an integrated and collaborative Primary Health Care workforce
  • Ensuring access to relevant and current health and services information.

RDGP works in partnership with a broad range of organisations and service providers to deliver integrated and coordinated health services to the community including General Practice, specialists, allied health services, state government health services – including hospitals and community health, non government organisations, local government and community groups.

RDGP gratefully acknowledges the financial and other support from Country SA PHN and the Australian Government Department of Health.
