General Practice Integration Unit (GPIU)

Our General Practice Integration Unit (GPIU) is a dual initiative between the Northern Adelaide Local Health Network (NALHN) and Adelaide Primary Health Networks (APHN).

GPIU was established to drive positive changes and improve patient care by facilitating and strengthening collaboration, communication and integration between General Practices (GPs) in northern metropolitan Adelaide and the NALHN.

The aim of the GPIU is to encourage and improve the exchange of information, cooperation, efficiency, and quality of communication between hospitals and GPs.
