From the President’s desk

Mid-April already!! There has been so much going on – I just want to highlight a few.

 The FP’s in private have finalized their position statement and are actively engaging with various medical aids around the issues of recognition, remuneration, access to specialist investigations and specialist formularies. The response from the medical aids has been really positive – they WANT to engage with Family Physicians – they REALLY like what we do and can see the benefit to patients and the potential cost savings from coordinated care, multimorbidity care, extended consultations, hospital at home etc. provided by FP’s. If you are a FP in private this is an initiative that you really want to join. Get in touch with Dr Sheena Matthews or Lucille for more details. []
