By Mukesh Haikerwal

This is the “wash-up” of the COVID effort in our Respiratory clinic in Melbourne’s Western suburbs practice in Altona.  

Below please find the link for the Report into the Contact tracing inquiry in Victoria. Your own exposure to this will be interesting in the New Year. None of us are out of the woods yet!

Thanks for your efforts too – it has taken a cooperative, collaborative effort to get these into place and used.

I will provide some state later on the www.australianGPalliance.com.au web-site.  

In the New Year, we hope to host some “roundtables” and “townhall” type meetings to canvass this COVID-19 situation and some other GPs’ issues.

These will include:

  • GP role in COVID-19 Vaccination

Australia’s COVID-19 vaccination policy | Australian Government Department of Health

  • The 2021 Influenza season
  • Prescribing by ingredients being made mandatory from 1/2/2021

Active ingredient prescribing: all you need to know – NPS MedicineWise

  • “Regulations” regarding use of email in practice: staying safe
  • Electronic management of Prescriptions
  • GP PIP QI
  • Pathology rentals
  • Payroll Tax

Hoping that you have time to stop, rest, recuperate!  Stay well! Stay safe! Stay sane!

With best wishes for the Festive Season.
