GP Alert - scam letters regarding 80/20 rule

6 Aug 2015

The Department of Human Services (DHS) advised the AMA this week that there are scam letters being sent to GPs in Sydney and Wollongong warning them that they are approaching the 80/20 rule. The letters have the DHS and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) logos on them, and use the standard form of words that DHS uses in letters to GPs. 

If GPs receive this letter they should disregard it. If they have any concerns, or indeed any information about the source of a letter they have received, they should contact the DHS Health Practitioner Area on 02 6143 6040.
