“The Medicare rebate drops off the longer you spend with a patient.

I’m in Launceston in Tassie. We have a very high demand for services and fewer doctors.

Along with an ageing population and higher rates of disease in Tasmania, patients with complex needs are probably being churned through quickly.

This just doesn't allow us to give the level of care that they deserve.”
