South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN) is seeking Expressions Of Interest (EOI) from accredited General Practices across the SEMPHN catchment to extend their existing operating hours in the After-Hours (AH) period.

Benefits of after-hours care include:

  • Opportunities for your practice to see more patients
  • Practitioners may see more urgent care conditions, allowing them to maintain their skills
  • Increased community recognition of services provided after hours
  • Increased local service engagement
  • Even better face-to-face primary care for your patients
  • Reduced presentations to emergency departments


This EOI opportunity is being offered to accredited General Practices across all local government areas (LGAs) within the SEMPHN catchment.

However, priority may be given to suitable proposals in the following suburbs:

Dandenong, Pakenham South, Frankston, Frankston North, Rosebud, McCrae, Berwick North, Cranbourne East, Point Nepean (Tootgarook, St Andrews Beach, Rye, Blairgowrie, Sorrento, Portsea), Cheltenham, Highett, Hampton Park, South Yarra East, Hampton,  Sandringham, Prahran or Windsor.

To submit an expression of interest, register to SEMPHN's eProcure portal, answer brief questions and download the response template. Once the response form has been completed, upload it to eProcure.

Practices are asked to propose the funding they require to provide the additional hours and services in the AH period.
