About Us

The Gippsland Region Palliative Care Consortium (GRPCC) is an alliance of 14 member agencies that provide inpatient and/or community palliative care for the residents of Gippsland.  The GRPCC is one of eight regional consortia established as part of the Victorian Government’s palliative care policy released in 2004.  The Consortium’s role is to help deliver and facilitate the Victorian Government’s current policy, End of Life Care and Palliative Care Framework, across the Gippsland region.

The GRPCC’s vision is that Gippslanders with a life-threatening illness and their families and carers will have access to a high quality service system which is innovative and provides evidence-based coordinated care and support that is responsive to their individual needs.The GRPCC provides leadership to its member agencies by:

•undertaking regional planning;
•coordinating palliative care service provision;
•advising the Department of Health about regional priorities for future service development and funding; and
•managing the service delivery framework and undertaking communication, capacity building and clinical service improvement initiatives in conjunction with the Palliative Care Clinical Network.
