We’re doormats to pollies: GPs strike back

The sender will be Glendale GP Dr Paul Karen, who says politicians have treated medicos like him as doormats for far too long. 

Dr Karen says he isn’t a political animal but was moved to act by the rebate cuts imposed by the government in its co-payment ‘plan B’ last month. 

“I think it’s sad that we [GPs] are very meek [about politics],” he said.
