Why Invest in Primary Health Care?

For 27 years, Primary has been a catalyst and a leader in providing affordable, accessible healthcare for all Australians. Strong underlying demand for healthcare services is driven by:

  • an ageing population;
  • population growth;
  • government funding;
  • improved scope of procedures and tests; and
  • demand for preventative and chronic disease management.

Primary’s businesses are strategically positioned in the affordable and accessible market with quality national brands, a substantial footprint and no capacity constraints. We continue to focus on organic growth and to invest in infrastructure information technology to support our professionals and our business.

Our large-scale, bulk-billing model facilitates more than 8 million GP visits per annum throughout mainland Australia. We provide approximately 7% of total GP care and 23.1% of all after-hours GP care nationally.

We are a large pathology provider in Australia (the largest in Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia), with around one third market share, with over 15 million episodes per annum, providing services to one-third of the Australian community. We have the largest footprint of collection centres and laboratories nationally.

Our diagnostic imaging division provides approximately 3 million exams per annum, operating from 146 sites across Australia, including public and private hospitals, medical centres and community sites.
