'Low value' GPs fight back using #justaGP

UPDATED: 12 September 2016

GPs have taken to Twitter in an angry response to an MBS review report that identified “low-value administrative GP consultations” for activties such as repeat prescriptions, test results and sick leave certificates.

Launching the interim report on Tuesday, Federal Health Minister Sussan Ley suggested it was time for the government to stop supporting GPs for carrying out inefficient consults, and redirect the funds to “clinically relevant” tasks.
