The Doctors in Secondary Schools is a Victorian State funded program that connects a General Practitioner and Practice Nurse with a participating school one day per week.

The Victorian Budget 2021-22 has funded $43.4 million to extend the Doctors in Secondary Schools program in all participating schools across Victoria for another 4 years. 

Across the state clinics and schools have contributed to and benefitted from:

  • 41,000 consultations have been delivered by general practitioners 
  • over 10,500 referrals have been made

Across the 17 participating schools in the SEMPHN catchment, so far just this year, we have seen:

  • 759 GP consultations (57% Mental Health, 31% Physical Health, 7% Sexual Health)
  • 370 Practice Nurse Education and Consultations
  • 349 Referrals

Interested in joining the Doctors in Secondary Schools?

We are currently seeking expressions of interest from clinics in the Pakenham area that may have a GP with an interest in Youth Health who would like to join the program.
