RACGP launches new media campaign - 'I'm not just a GP. I'm your specialist in life'
The RACGP is launching a new media campaign to promote GPs to the public as part of its bloody battle with the Federal Government over funding.
The college says GPs and their patients are at "breaking point" due to the ongoing Medicare freeze, and is warning that the government's "significantly underfunded and rushed Health Care Homes program" could put patients at risk.
"General practice has to be supported and funded appropriately. Ongoing cuts are symptomatic of a flawed health policy that will harm patients as well as the taxpayer," says RACGP
