Wanted: GP hit squad to be ‘deployed at a moment’s notice’ to rescue struggling practices

The 10 GPs would be State Government employees according to the Tasmanian Liberal Party re-election pledge.

A team of 10 GPs employed by the Tasmanian Government will be “deployed at a moment’s notice” to rescue struggling practices under a radical election pledge.

State Premier Jeremy Rockliff revealed the policy on Sunday as part of his fight for re-election, dubbing it the GP NOW Rapid Response Team.
