This petition calls on Scott Morrison to reverse the cut to doctors' bulk billing incentives in Shortland.
Nearly half of all people in Shortland have to pay to see the doctor, and when they do they are $37 out of pocket.
In January 2020, bulk billing incentives to doctors in Shortland were reduced, making it harder for GPs to bulk bill children and pensioners.
Many doctors have stopped bulk billing even those in need.
This is unacceptable. It is a community health risk, and puts even more strain on our hospital emergency departments.
Scott Morrison must reverse these changes and retain bulk billing incentives for GPs.
Your health depends on it.
Please sign the petition.
