Dr Joris Asselbergs said he had been recruited by a struggling solo GP who was still working six days a week
Dr Joris Asselbergs and his partner.

An IMG who spent years battling bureaucracy to work as a GP in a small Tasmanian town says Australia is missing out on doctors because of the “long and inefficient” process.  

Dr Joris Asselbergs spent 12 months in Tasmania with his partner waiting on paperwork before giving up, packing their bags and returning to the Netherlands.
