Understanding subsidies and managing payments.

Subsidies and Payments

Payments will only be made when a current Training Services Deed is in place, and a signed Training Facility Placement Confirmation is submitted to WAGPET for each GP registrar employed.

Payments are made via recipient-created tax invoices. Please refer to your Training Services Deed for more information.

Salary support for Aboriginal Medical Services

Funds are available from the Department of Health to support the reimbursement of a GP registrar's salary while they are undertaking a training placement at an Aboriginal Medical Service as part of their AGPT program.

WAGPET manages the administration process for the reimbursement of GP registrar salaries back to the training facility who employs GP registrars at an Aboriginal Health Training placement.
