You are invited to help develop and test a tool to measure the quality of health care in general practice.

This opportunity is part of a Western Sydney University study called Quality Equity and Systems Transformation in Primary Health Care (QUEST PHC). We hope that the tool being developed will help improve the quality of care in general practice. It may enable changes to the way GPs (doctors) are paid, so that the quality of care improves. This is needed to help slow the rising costs of health care.

Input from patients is critical to the success of this research. We need people who use the primary health care system to help develop and test the tool so that it accurately measures the quality of care.
