Senate Inquiry provides opportunity to address health disparities between rural, remote and urban communities
6 January 2012
The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) National Rural Faculty (NRF) has recently reinforced the need to eliminate long-standing health disparities between rural, remote and urban communities in Australia. In its submission to the Senate Inquiry, The factors affecting the supply of health services and medical professionals in rural areas, the NRF’s paper calls on the Government to address the entire range of essential requirements specific to rural and remote communities, from workforce shortages to gaps in resources and services.
