Submission to the Senate inquiry on Administration of registration and notification by Ahpra and related entities


Date: 3 May 2021

The administration of the Health Practitioner National Law has been subject to a number of reviews in the past several years, including previous Senate inquiries. 

The RACGPs response to the most recent inquiry identified outstanding issues that had not been resolved in previous inquiries, namely the communication, transparency and timeliness of the complaint’s mechanism and the importance of appropriate recognition of the impacts of assessment and investigation on a practitioner’s mental health.
