A GP whose practice failed accreditation because 85% of its work was skin cancer related has lambasted the RACGP’s definition of a general practice as “discriminatory”.

Practice owner Dr Vin Rajeswaran said his clinic lost access to $120,000 in annual Practice Incentive Program (PIP) payments and could no longer take on GP registrars or medical students after failing its accreditation assessment earlier this year.
