Doctor sees ‘significant’ improvement in Perth medics’ physical condition
The Perthshire Medics’ Association is pleased to announce that its medical team has seen significant improvements in their physical condition, which it said was the result of the intensive physiotherapy.
The WAMA said the doctors were being treated with the utmost care and were continuing to receive intensive physiotherapies to improve their condition.
PerthshireMedicsAuckland Medics, based in Auckland, has seen a 30 per cent increase in its medical staff.
WAMA president and CEO, Peter Macfarlane, said the association had been receiving a lot of support from the WA Government.
“This is the first time we’ve seen the number of staff in the association rise in any way,” he said.
It’s fantastic for them to be able to do this, and we’re delighted to see this, we’re very grateful to them.””
These are the doctors, they’re the experts in their fields and they’re doing this because of the WA Medical Association and the Government.”
It’s fantastic for them to be able to do this, and we’re delighted to see this, we’re very grateful to them.
“We have a very large number of members in the profession and there are a lot more members of the profession now than there were just a few years ago.”
He said the group had also been receiving financial support from WA Health and had been providing a high quality physiotherapy program for over 10 years.
“It’s a significant amount of support and the doctors have been doing a fantastic job,” Mr Macfaddin said.
Mr Macbodley said the WAMA was currently considering funding for a new physiotherapy course to be run in Perth, as well as a new programme to train the rest of the Perthshire Medical Association.
The GP, who is based at the Central Medical Centre, said there were other reasons for the increase in the number and quality of doctors, as the number in the area had increased by about 20 per cent since the mid-2000s.
“There’s an increase in population, an increase across all of the hospitals, so you’ve got people from all over the place,” he told the ABC.
“They’re looking for help.”
He also revealed that the association was working to bring in a new Chief Medical Officer and was looking to recruit another senior practitioner.
“I’m delighted to say we’re moving into the next stage,” Mr Mcbodney said.
The association has seen an increase of more than 1,000 members since the association opened in the late 1990s.
He said there was an increasing need for the association to improve its training and facilities and was hopeful of having a new chief medical officer by mid-2018.
“Our membership has grown by more than a million members since we opened,” he added.
WA Medical Minister, Michael McCormack, said he was delighted to be working with the association.
“Physiotherapy is an important part of the rehabilitation programme that we’re introducing in WA,” Mr McCormack said.
“The WAMA’s support of the GP profession is an essential part of our long-term plan to transform the Perth and South West regions of Australia into a vibrant health and social hub.”
Mr McCormick said the Government would be providing funding to help the association through the rehabilitation process. “
The WA Government is making a strong commitment to provide support for our members and their families, particularly in the early stages of rehabilitation.”
Mr McCormick said the Government would be providing funding to help the association through the rehabilitation process.
“When we were first established in 1992, the Government of WA made no funding available to support our members during their recovery,” he explained.
He said the health sector had been making significant contributions to the WA community, including through the WA Mental Health Service.
“Widespread public awareness and support has been an important factor in supporting the WA Medics Association and supporting their recovery and I am proud to see that continuing to be so,” Mr McCulloch said.
