Petitioning Federal Minister for Health The Hon. Sussan Ley and 1 other

Quit targeting general practice and the health of all Australians

From 19 January 2015, patient rebates from Medicare will be CUT by up to $25, meaning patients will pay more. Both patients and GPs have been unfairly targeted under the Government’s revised co-payment model.

GPs are vital to the health and wellbeing of every Australian. Don’t let yours be targeted.

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) represents over 28,500 GPs working in or towards a career in general practice. The RACGP has been vocal with Government but it is falling on deaf ears. They haven’t listened to us but perhaps they will listen to you.

By uniting GPs and patients, we stand a stronger chance of having our voices heard by a Government that has continually chosen to ignore the general practice profession, Australian community, and international evidence.

Stand up and show the Government that your health, that of your families, and a viable healthcare system matters most.
