Hervey Bay is a growing city, beautiful and with so much to offer! Sadly there is a GP shortage. GP that are LGBTIQ inclusive, S100 prescribers, mental health specific and aged care and disability focussed. They are all much needed. There are fabulous hospitals with dedicated staff and modern up to date facilities but low numbers on GPs. Please look at this. Being so far from the city, Brisbane, there is great need to address these issues.

Health care is a necessity within every community. Doctor shortages can leave many people to suffer with otherwise treatable and manageable medical issues.

I work in a community pharmacy and am constantly hearing the struggles of patients having issues with finding a doctor they trust only for them to move away after building a rapport. This area has a high ageing population needing routine medical care from trained and reliable doctors

I am signing because if you are sick, you need to see a doctor asap not in 8 days to 2 weeks time. I want to be able to see the DR of my choice all the time. Not a different one every time.

Not only shortage of Dr's but also SPECIALISTS, WHY DO WE HAVE TO GO TO BRISBANE TO GET Specialist help!! There are not only Pensioners living here, but also YOung Families, & people with AUto-immune disorders!...:(

I agree with this proposal. I ring my GP for an appointment and am constYtold it will be at least a week to ten days. Ridiculous !
