Frankston/Mornington Peninsula Primary Care Partnership
Frankston/Mornington Peninsula Primary Care Partnership (FMPPCP) is a collaborative partnership of health and community service providers committed to strengthening the planning, coordination and delivery of services by using a range of innovative and collaborative strategies, which are designed to improve outcomes for people using health and community support services.
The Primary Care Partnership (PCP) Strategy is a State Government funded initiative that arose out of the Better Access to Services policy, giving rise to a major reform in the way services are delivered in the primary care and community support services sector in Victoria. PCPs aim to improve access to services and continuity of care for people through improved service coordination, as well as chronic disease prevention and management, integrated health promotion, and partnership development.
The FMPPCP has been engaged as a core partner in catchment and region wide initiatives over the past 10 years, including health promotion initiatives, projects to strengthen the service system and promote common approaches to service coordination, consumer journey mapping and eHealth initiatives.
The FMPPCP is committed to continuing to build on and expand its work through integration with the Peninsula Model. It shares resources and project support to maintain the Peninsula Model, and is a key participant in the Peninsula Model Executive Group (PMEG) providing secretariat support, and enabling consultation, communication and engagement with its 40 member agencies. PCP member agencies are active participants at all levels of the Peninsula Model.
