The Board has approved the establishment of three Primary Care Clinicians Advisory Group Chairs throughout Gippsland’s sub regions of East Gippsland / Wellington, Latrobe / Baw Baw and South Gippsland Bass Coast.  These groups will engage general practitioners and allied health professionals in shaping the future strategy of GML.
