GPs use scripts to campaign against Medicare freeze

GPs are turning their patient scripts into a weapon against the Federal Government's Medicare freeze.

Hundreds of grassroots doctors have downloaded RACGP 'anti-freeze' logos so they can be printed onto patient scripts.

The scripts read: “Danger you and your family’s health is being targeted.”

"Support your GP and tell your local MP that you oppose the extended freeze on your Medicare rebates," the message adds.

The idea was devised by doctors on the GPs Down Under Facebook site
