GPSpeak is the magazine and online journal and e-newsletter of the Northern Rivers General Practice Network.

GPSpeak is the best way for any company or organisation offering services or products to local GPs to make contact directly with the key clinicians and their practices.

The journal has considerable interest to GPs and other healthcare providers beyond the NSW Northern Rivers region. However, its focus will be local.

Being locally focused, our articles and advertising will be well-read and able to produce real results for those businesses targeting this influential market.

Who should advertise in GPSpeak?

Any organisation, company or individual offering services or products used by GPs and their practices stands to benefit from making direct contact with our readership.

These will include –

  • Referral services such as medical specialists, diagnostics, private hospitals and allied health professionals, both in the Northern Rivers as well as within the region’s referral footprint, such as the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Sydney
  • Manufacturers and distributors of pharmaceuticals and other therapeutics, including rehabilitation equipment
  • Retailers of consumer goods such as motor vehicles, investment real estate, travel bookings
  • Taxation and investment advisers
  • Operators of accommodation facilities such as B & Bs that would appeal to visiting locum and other clinical staff.

Background

For many years the journal GPSpeak flourished as the voice of the Northern Rivers General Practice Network before being placed on hold when many of the assets of the Network were transferred to the newly established North Coast (NSW) Medicare Local. 

After popular support from our GP members, we re-launched GPSpeak in December 2013 to provide a valuable hub for sharing information, accessing professional resources, linking GPs with hospitals, specialists and other services, and educational and training coordinators.

GPSpeak is online, available for all to see on the Web, and supported by a subscriber-only regular e-newsletter updating interested recipients, especially our GP members, on issues of importance and interest to them.

Both methods of delivery offer advertisers value for money by bringing their messages to a specific and relevant readership.

Key personnel:

  • Clinical Editor, Dr David Guest
  • Editor, Robin Osborne
  • Clinical Editor: Dr Andrew Binns
  • Web manager, layout & graphics: Angela Bettess
