GP campaign targets Medicare reviews

The campaign, led by Adelaide practice management consultant David Dahm, features a YouTube video broadly calling for less government involvement in general practice matters and a rethink of how GPs are scrutinised by Medicare.

Mr Dahm said GPs who specialised in certain areas, such as female GPs who consulted female patients, unfairly appeared on Medicare records as “statistical outliers” as their consult times tended to be higher than average.
