We're doctors for doctors.

Primary Health Care Ltd started as one doctor's vision to provide accessible quality medicine to all Australians.

30 years and over 75 (and counting) medical centres later, Primary has evolved into one of Australia's leading health care companies. We are operated by health professionals for health professionals.

Our vision is grand and we have the scale to prove it, we have medical centres spread all over Australia. The Barefoot GP program is the newest addition to Primary's vision and ever growing list of initiatives.

Each of our centres are made with the medical home approach and integrated care in mind. You can find pathology and diagnostic imagery services within all of our centres' grounds. Under the same roof you can also find Day Surgeries, Dental, IVF, Allied Health and Specialist services in some of our centres.

As an innovating health care corporate, we also offer career opportunities beyond solely general practice for health care professionals. And through our Primary Health Care Institute, we offer free clinical education for health care professionals within our network.
