AMA submission to Senate Committee on AHPRA

17 May 2011

The AMA submission to the Senate Finance and Public Administration Committee inquiry into AHPRA highlights that the administrative failure by AHPRA to properly plan for and coordinate the transition to national registration has had a detrimental effect on individual medical practitioners, and on services to patients.  In failing to ensure that every medical practitioner transitioned smoothly to national registration, AHPRA failed to act in the public interest.  Patient care was put at risk because medical practitioners could not work.
