Shortsighted move disadvantages remote GPs
Our nearest metropolitan referral centre is Perth, over 2000km away.
The GPs and GP registrars are the lifeblood of the hospital. They make the hospital viable and provide excellent, quality care for our patients.
They provide emergency medical services, anaesthetic services, obstetric services, administrative services, outpatient services and provide much needed support to our specialists.
This all comes at a cost. CPD is not cheap but it is essential and in some cases mandatory as a condition of employment.
