We thank all our general practice, pharmacy and other primary health care professionals and staff for their dedication, resilience and ingenuity in adapting to the challenges of the pandemic and public anxiety.

We know that the vaccine rollout has been extremely stressful. Thank you for your patience and be assured we are continuing to advocate on your behalf for improvements to the rollout in general practice.

Most importantly, we want you to be sure to take care of yourselves. Black Dog Institute explains why self-care planning is critical during the pandemic. This includes you. So, please make time to care for yourself and to debrief regularly with colleagues.

In addition to the resources below, there is more mental health support available for you and your patients.
