GP Liaison

The GP Liaison Service provides a link between the Hospital and general practitioners working in the community. The Liaison GP, Lucy Gilkes, usually works at a system level and is only in the hospital for several hours each week. The Liaison GP position reports to executive members from SCGH and the WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA).
