The Northern Rivers Division of General Practice was formed in 1993 in response to a Federal government initiative to provide support organisations to Australian general practices. It changed its name to the Northern Rivers General Practice Network in February 2007 to reflect its broader role in communicating and supporting practices.
It lost its government funding in April 2012, as part of then Labor government's shift from Divisions of General Practice to Medicare Locals, which it turn became Primary Health Networks in 2016 under a Coalition government.
The NRGPN covered an area from Ocean Shores in the north, to Maclean in the south and from the coast westward to the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. There were approximately 200 members including active and retired doctors and doctors in training.
The NRGPN pivoted in December 2019 to become the Northern Rivers Medical Network, comprising all doctors living or working in its new footprint from the Queensland border to Grafton.
GPSpeak was the forerunner of Nordocs magazine but changed its masthead in August 2020.
The Nordocs network has links with the North Coast Primary Health Network and the Northern NSW Local Health District and works with other local organisations involved in medical education such as the Richmond Valley Clinical Society and CAPE Institute.
