The AMA’s Family Doctor Week highlights the work and dedication of GPs – Australia’s family doctors – and the issues they encounter as they deliver high-quality health care to their local communities.
Family Doctor Week will run from Sunday 19 July to Saturday 25July 2015. The theme for this year’s event is You and Your Family Doctor: the best partnership in health.
Nearly 90 per cent of Australians have a regular family doctor. We know that people who have an ongoing relationship with their family doctor enjoy better health.
Our events and activities in Family Doctor Week will promote the importance of having a family doctor and that through the provision of patient centred care a trusted partnership in health is formed. This partnership efficiently and effectively delivers patents' holistic medical care, ensuring better health, treatment and management.

AMA Family Doctor Week Logo
To further enhance the concept of the Family Doctor, the AMA is now making available a logo for GP members use in identifying and promoting themselves to patients as a Family Doctor.
The use of the 2015 AMA Family Doctor Logo is a sign to the community and your medical and health professional colleagues that you provide patient centred, holistic and longitudinal medical care.
The logo is only being made available to financial GP and GP Registrar members of the AMA for their individual use. It can be used for website profiles, email signature blocks, and electronic or professional stationery.
