Helping students access the health care they need

We are very pleased to announce that The Gap State High School has been selected to participate in the GPs in Schools Pilot.

The Pilot is part of the Queensland Government's Student Well-being Package. The initiative is designed to make it easier for adolescents in Queensland schools to access the healthcare they need.

The Pilot will allow our school to set up a fit-for-purpose GP clinic on school grounds. This clinic will provide students with access to a GP one day each week, during school terms.

What services will the GP provide?

Our school GP clinic will offer secondary students the majority of services that young people are able to access from GPs in the community, including management of physical health, mental health, and sexual and reproductive health issues. The school GP clinic is not a vaccination centre.

Will there be a cost for students for students to see the GP?

All visits to the GP will be provided at no cost to students or their families. The GP will bulk-bill all appointments through Medicare, so it is important that students bring their Medicare card (or their Medicare number) with them to their appointment.

Our school clinic staff

Expressions of interest are currently being sought for our GP and Clinic Nurse.
