The GP Super Clinics were established within local communities as new or refurbished facilities. It was expected they would be sites of excellence in primary care service delivery and would provide opportunities for health professional education and training with a multi-disciplinary focus.2 They were to provide a broad range of services that targeted the health needs of local communities by bringing together a range of clinicians, including general practitioners, practice nurses, visiting medical specialists and allied health professionals. 2 Models of care were expected to reflect best practice multi-disciplinary and integrated care focusing on chronic disease and preventative health care.
