GP Co-Management – Shared Care Model

At the Albion Centre, we encourage and support our clients to maintain their relationship with their GP for other (non-HIV related) health issues.

To support GP’s in providing appropriate care and support to HIV positive clients we encourage you to watch this video which includes key information on shared care to assist you.
