AMA (ACT) President's Message - Board of inquiry

Dear colleagues,

I wanted to give you an update on where we are up to with our campaign for a Board of Inquiry to examine workplace culture and bullying in the ACT healthcare system.

On Sunday we held a joint media conference with ASMOF, supported by the VMOA, again calling for the establishment of a Board of Inquiry. We made this call to demonstrate that organised medicine stood together for the good of the healthcare system in the ACT.

My thanks to our colleagues at ASMOF and the VMOA for their support.

Shining a light on our healthcare system

On Monday, the AMA (ACT) made a public call for an independent inquiry into workplace culture and bullying in the ACT Healthcare system.   In our view, an independent inquiry is needed as a circuit breaker for the almost non-stop series of crises and complaints that have been coming out of the local health system over an extended period.
