Primary health care

Primary health care services can help to keep people well and out of hospital by supporting them to manage their health issues in the community and at home. These services can reduce the need for specialist services and visits to emergency departments.

There are data provided on Indigenous health checks and antenatal care. Potentially preventable hospitalisations are also included in this section. These are conditions for which hospitalisation could have been avoided through early diagnosis and treatment in primary health care.
