In reply to Hon G G Brock MP, (14 October 2020):
How many overseas general practitioners have been approved to work in Port Pirie? How many of those applications were not approved and why?
Hon John Gardner MP: The Minister for Health and Wellbeing has been advised that:
“The Yorke and Northern Local Health Network has no direct involvement in general practitioner recruitment for the practices in the town.
The process is undertaken by the practice and the GPs who are applying to Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency directly for consideration of appropriateness of practice in the country.”
Hon John Gardner MP
Minister for Education
