As part of the Doctors in Secondary Schools program, the Department will provide 100 schools with modern, fit-for-purpose GP consultation facilities on school grounds. This will be either a new, purpose-built relocatable building or a refurbished area in an existing, permanent facility.
The consultation facilities will contain a consultation room, equipped and furnished for use by a GP, an office for the program coordinator, and a waiting room for students. The facilities are designed to support patient privacy and confidentiality, and include features to support visual and auditory privacy.
The consulting suite facilities will comply with standard 5.1 of Standards for General Practices 4th Edition issued by Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
