Help for regional dentists, GPs

IN an effort to improve health services in regional and remote Australia the Federal Government has announced new grants programs targeting GP and dental services as part of its 2012-13 Budget.

More than $77 million over four years will go towards encouraging dentists to relocate to regional remote areas, with relocation grants between $15,000 and $120,000 and grants of $250,000 to aid in the purchase and fit-out of dental facilities.

Due to the success of the existing General Practise Rural Incentives Program, the Federal Government has also allocated $34.9 million during 2012-13 to meet the demand of GPs wanting to move or remain in rural and remote communities.
