Reclassification will improve our area's chronic shortage of GPs
21st July 2022
Great news today for many in the community who've been struggling to see a GP. I've been raising this issue with State and Federal Health Ministers for many years.
The Federal Government has announced reclassifications making more doctors eligible to work in the area under the Medicare system.
This is effective from today. I'm sure it will take a little time for a real improvement in GP availability, but this is great news for Lake Macquarie moving forward.
