$180m package for primary care to support COVID cases at home

The Australian government has released a new package of funding to provide assistance to GPs and practice nurses, along with subsidies for devices like pulse oximeters, as the management of COVID-19 cases moves from hospital to the community.

Health Minister Greg Hunt said the package would also include extra support for Healthdirect to support COVID-positive treatment pathways in community care.
