The GP ANSC program is a joint initiative between the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD) and Sydney Local Health District (SLHD) maternity facilities and Central and Eastern Sydney PHN (CESPHN).

The GP ANSC program’s goal is to improve maternal and child wellbeing through appropriate access and provision of integrated antenatal and postnatal care. The program supports clinicians and service providers to meet quality standards, address local community needs and improve patient care in relation to maternal and child health requirements.

GP ANSC is a model of antenatal care that is jointly provided by an ANSC GP and hospital-based services. An ANSC GP has attained specific recognition with the relevant hospital to participate in the ANSC program. All women attending SESLHD or SLHD maternity facilities for management of their pregnancy and delivery have the option of this model of care. This is dependent upon their wishes, and the agreement of their ANSC GP and hospital after the assessment of risk factors.
