The paper outlines the results of a review of a number of aspects of the refereed literature that will need to be considered by a person interested in the business aspects of the corporatization of local service providers. These aspects of the literature have been selected both because of their currency and because of their relevance to regional development practice.

The literature outlined supports the view that further local research to increase our understanding of the business aspects of the corporatization of local service providers looks promising because of both the potential positive and the negative impacts that corporatization could have on local community wellbeing in Regional Australia.

The provision of regional medical general practice services is used as an exemplar for the range of other services that interest regional development practitioners. This paper provides the reader with an insight into current literature on issues of corporatization of local services provides. A number of issues are identified from the literature and are summarised. These provide a very good base for investigation through further research.
