GP Specialist Advice and Referral Collaboration (SpARC)
The Specialist Advice and Referral Collaboration (SpARC) has been a six-month pilot program led by the Perth North Primary Health Network, as part of WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA).
The program has worked with specialists in the fields of respiratory, cardiology and endocrinology from Royal Perth Hospital (RPH) to establish relationships with general practice. A targeted approach was used to engage general practices in the catchment that most frequently refer into the hospital.
