For many years the Nordocs magazine forerunner, 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.
In January 2020 the Northern Rivers General Practice Network changed its constitution to represent all doctors - GPs, specialists and doctors in training - in the larger footprint of Tweed Heads to Grafton. In September 2020, GPSpeak magazine was renamed Nordocs reflecting this change in focus.
Nordocs magazine is online without restriction and is supported by a subscriber-only regular e-newsletter updating our 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.
