National Consistent Payments:
Training Practice Support under the AGPT program 

Since the first semester of 2023, training support payments relating to the Commonwealth-funded AGPT program have been administered through Services Australia as part of the National Consistent Payments (NCP) framework. These payments are available to accredited training practices, supervisors and registrars.

For more information on the program please see: National Consistent Payments Framework | Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care.

The 4 types of payments under the AGPT program

Paid directly to the accredited training practice – the practice must register in the Organisation Register and add their bank account details to get these payments.

Authorised through the RACGP/ACRRM systems, these are paid directly to the accredited training practice, unless Services Australia is advised to pay the supervisor directly

Paid directly to the registrar, not the practice, these payments help with some of the costs of relocating to a new practice, education, training, and other registrar expenses

Paid to accredited training practices who can host a salary support person for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health training.
The practice must register in the Organisation Register and add their bank account details – Services Australia will pay any of the practice, supervisor, or registrar.

How NCP payments work

The Department of Health and Aged Care (DOHAC) delivers the AGPT program through a contract with RACGP and ACRRM (the Colleges). DOHAC decides who is eligible for AGPT training support payments and how much they should be paid at any point in time.

The Colleges calculate payments for everyone registered in the AGPT Program, transmitting this information to Services Australia as individual payment requests to be filled directly through the PRODA/HPOS systems.

How to access NCP payments through Services Australia

Services Australia’s payment system identifies the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program as “the General Practice Training Program (GPTP)”. All participating practices, supervisors and registrars should note the AGPT program is the same as the GPTP on the Services Australia’s payment system.
