Senate Inquiry – GP Workforce

Advocacy. It’s a big part of what we do. We want Australians to have access to world-class healthcare, that is sustainable, efficient and most importantly effective.

Everyday we field multiple enquiries from practices in outer metro, regional and rural parts of Australia that are DESPERATE to recruit a GP, because they are unable to meet patient demand. 90% of the time we are unable to help these clients due to the extreme shortage of GPs.

The Senate inquiry into provision of Health services of General Practitioners has given us a chance to share some of these stories in our recent submission (see below).

We are also excited to be invited to give evidence at the public hearing on 7 March 2022 in Melbourne, and look forward to hearing the recommendations from the inquiry in the coming months.

In 2012 we were also invited to give evidence at public hearing “Lost in the Labyrinth: Report on the inquiry into registration processes and support for overseas trained doctors”, as a way of supporting our clients and the Australian public continue to access quality healthcare services.
