Abstract

One hundred and eight Access to Allied Psychological Services projects have
been funded under Australia’s Better Outcomes in Mental Health Care programme since
July 2001. All projects are run by Divisions of General Practice and enable general
practitioners (GPs) to refer patients to allied health professionals for evidence-based care.
They differ in the models they use to retain, locate and direct referrals to their allied health
professionals. This paper examines the extent to which the projects are achieving positive
patient outcomes, and explores the association between different models of service
delivery and varying levels of patient outcomes.
