Australia's health system needs re-balancing: a report on the shortage of primary care services in rural and remote Australia

Australia's health system needs re-balancing: a report on the shortage of primary care services in rural and remote Australia is the latest position paper by National Rural Health Alliance. This paper complements the AIHW report, Australian health expenditure by remoteness. It summarises the AIHW's report findings, re-interprets some of the conclusions and makes estimates of the geographical distribution of the 44% of recurrent costs not included in the AIHW report. The paper concludes with 10 recommendations to boost primary health care in rural areas.
