Hosting a GP roundtable

Today Shadow Health Minister Ashton Hurn and I hosted a roundtable discussion with doctors about the Malinauskas Labor Government’s proposed new GP patient tax. This new tax will potentially:

  • Force doctors to raise fees or even close their practices
  • Drive more people to our already stretched emergency departments
  • Make ambulance ramping worse

This is inexplicable during a health and a cost of living crisis.
