    I may have missed it when I searched diligently through the Medicare Locals guidelines but I don’t think local government got a mention. Local government is all about primary care – from maternal and child care services to aged care services, from health promotion to health services, from physical health to mental health, and so on. What’s more, local government holds vast stocks of data relating to the health and well-being of their communities – usually all mapped and accessable. If we want to tip a hat somewhere in the direction of the social model of health, local government (and the community involvement that it brings) must be central to any effort to improve primary health care.
