Medical Register listing scam still an issue for GPs
The AMA (WA) has informed members that a number of practices have been approached with the offer of a free listing in the Australasian Health Professionals Directory. Unfortunately general practitioners and their practice managers are still falling for this scam, and it's likely to continue for the forseeable future.
On no account should doctors or practices make any payment or provide credit card details.
Those who have signed up to AUHPD should immediately send a follow-up communication rescinding their participation. Doctors and practices that receive demands for payment or financial information from AUHPD should immediately contact the local Office of Fair Trading or the ACCC.
For further details or information, please contact the AMA (WA) on (08) 9273 3008 or email Michael Prendergast.
