AMA WA vice-president Dr Simon Torvaldsen has quit the board saying he is frustrated by the “glacial” actions of the state organisation to settle its ongoing dispute with the federal AMA. 

A month ago, the federal AMA sent an email telling 5000 WA members that they had been expelled from the national organisation and were no longer represented by it.
