Media request - Women in all states/territories who can speak about allied health
We are looking for one or two women in every state and
territory who would be happy to speak to the media about the importance of
allied health services, for example, exercise physiologists, physiotherapists,
dietitians, psychologists, lymphoedema therapists, social workers, etc. for a media campaign in relation to Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The key issues include:
- Cost -
Under GP Management Plans and Team care arrangements, women are eligible to claim a Medicare rebate for up to five visits per calendar year to allied health practitioners; we want this extended to 10 visits per year.
- Availability of services – for example availability of services in outer regional or rural areas.
