GP Access to Psychiatrists Adelaide PHN - An Australian Government Initiative

GP Access to Psychiatrists


GP-PASA is a unique South Australian service assisting General Practitioners and patients with accessing one-off psychiatric assessments provided under MBS Item Number 291. In partnership with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP), the Adelaide PHN is reviewing the GP-PASA service with the aim to increase the number of psychiatrists providing appointment times and improve access to one-off psychiatric assessments for General Practitioners and patients across the Adelaide PHN region. In the absence of available future appointments, GP-PASA can support General Practitioners to link with psychiatrists appropriate to the needs of the patient. If you require further information or wish to discuss the service, please call GP-PASA on 1800 72 18 99. The Adelaide PHN expect to announce further information regarding GP-PASA shortly, incorporating the outcomes of the review.
