Becoming a Shared Care GP

GPs wishing to provide shared antenatal care at MSH region hospitals are encouraged to become aligned. There are a number of options to alignment including completion of a DRANZCOG, Certificate of Women’s Health, MMH or MSH Alignment 1 seminar. See flowchart outlining the Alignment/Re-Alignment Options and further resources on the GP Maternity Share Care Education event page

The Maternity Shared Care alignment seminars are updated regularly to support GPs provide safe and contemporaneous maternity care for women and families in Brisbane south.

Completing the MSH Alignment 1 seminar will enable GPs to participate in the Maternity Shared Care Alignment Program with Logan, Redland and Beaudesert Hospitals, and provide a pathway to accessing the MMH Online Bridging program.

The GP Maternity Shared Care team at Metro South Health also offer the MSH GP Maternity Shared Care Online Bridging Program. The program is delivered via an interactive online learning module, and is available to all GPs who are currently aligned to provide GP Maternity Shared Care at MMH and wish to align with MSH. To access the MSH GP Maternity Shared Care Online Bridging Program, please contact the GP Liaison Officer on GPLO_Maternity_Share_Care@health.qld.gov.au
