Hi all,

 

As we are all facing uncertain times under the COVID-19 cloud there is one thing that we can be certain of. With the cancelling of all elective surgeries this week we are set to face an absolute tsunami of elective surgeries post COVID with waiting lists growing as we speak to unprecedented levels, not to mention patients now left in limbo. Our health system can’t cope! Australia conducts some 850,000 elective surgeries per annum & this number is growing with no funding model to help reduce the lists. 

 

The solution to this is quite simple and already established. As many of you know many elective surgeries can be avoided & better managed with conservative care and a well managed program such as Clinical Pilates MBCT. With just a small proportion of the funding being promised, we could further demonstrate the massive cost benefits of physiotherapists.

 

I have attached a template letter that I have sent different versions of to each state premier, opposition leader & health minister. The contact list is below & I would urge each of you to push similarly for our profession to be recognised as the solution to the massive problem that is looming. We already know that our health system is in trouble, We are able to stop it tipping over the edge.

 

Please help the profession to gain the recognition & funding we need. As a DMA trained clinical pilates physio, please feel free to join the conversation on our Facebook Group.

 

 

Regards
