Thank you for participating in my survey!
 
The Morrison Government’s attacks on our healthcare system aren’t just making it more expensive for patients to see a doctor. They’re also making it harder for people to find a doctor.
 
GP shortages is a significant problem in our region. This issue has been raised with me by both patients and doctors alike. The problem was caused by the Government reclassifying most of the Shortland electorate from being a ‘district of workforce shortage’ area to a metropolitan area without a GP shortage. This means that we now have a similar classification to Sydney. 
 
As a result of this reclassification, GPs now receive fewer government incentives to work in our region than they do to work in other rural and remote areas.
 
Labor has established a Senate inquiry into this issue. I will be making a submission to this inquiry on our community’s behalf because your combined experiences should be heard. If you'd prefer to make your own individual submission to the inquiry, you can do so by clicking here. The closing date for submissions is 30 September 2021.

This quick survey is to ensure that I have the best understanding possible of how you are impacted by this issue. Thank you for taking the time to complete it.
