GP Programmes

​GPFirst Programme

GPFirst aims to encourage people with mild to moderate medical conditions to visit their GPs first, rather than going direct to the A&E. Residents who visits a GPFirst Participating Clinic receives a $50 subsidy on the prevailing A&E attendance fee when they require a referral to CGH A&E.
