The development of the divisions of general practice network has been one of the major health innovations of the past decade. Its establishment was an innovative plan to build capacity in general practice to respond to health needs in the community and develop good quality health services. The network has a secure place in the health system and assists general practitioners to become involved at all levels of health policy and decision making. This capacity has facilitated multiple health reforms including immunisation and information technology, leading to improved health outcomes for the Australian community.
