GPSpeak is published four times per year at the start of each season on the first of December, March, June, September.

Copy for the next edition closes four weeks prior to publication. 

The GPSpeak team is (l-r) editor Robin Osborne, clinical editor Dr Andrew Binns, designer Dr Angela Bettess, and NRGPN chair, Dr David Guest.

On 18 September 2014 the Northern Rivers Network of General Practice launched the first hard-copy edition of GPSpeak, following a successful year of producing an active news website, PDF journal and a weekly newsletter for members and subscribers.

The launch was held at the University Centre for Rural Health in Lismore. Attendees heard that the magazine will be published quarterly and feature a variety of health-related stories of interest to GP members and medical practices, the broader health care community, and the general reader.

“GPSpeak has a long and proud tradition, having been published first in 1993, and developing from a mono newsletter to a full colour magazine, before being absorbed into the magazine HealthSpeak, when the North Coast NSW Medicare Local was formed,” NRGPN Chair Dr David Guest said.

“We’re offering a voice for local GPs and a range of articles of specialised medical interest, as well as non-technical, well informed writing about diverse health issues, and how they affect local residents.”

The following members were Directors of the Northern Rivers General Practice Network for the year ended June 2015
