Doctor shortage

By plausible 25 March 2010 21

An ongoing subject for Canberra, but when is it ever going to get any better. I found out just yesterday my doctor is drastically cutting back his hours. Where are we all supposed to go??? Not his fault as he is nearing retirement but where are the up and coming doctors to fill the gaps!

What’s Your opinion?

“4) Lack of renumeration”

What absolute bollocks

According to the Australian Taxation Office, the average GP earns a gross income of $212,833 a year

Wish I earnt that little. And don’t throw in the ‘thats before expenses’ drivel. Most if not all are tax deductible expenses

Tax deductibility, even on that income, means you get between 30 and 40 percent of the expenses back. Even assuming the best case scenario, expenses of $100k still hit your pocket to the tune of $60k.

I suspect, though, that the tax office’s figures represent the gross taxable income after expenses.
