The College has been involved in an extensive joint campaign with other leading medical colleges to urge the Australian Parliament to maintain the Medevac legislation.
All people should have access to safe, quality and timely mental health care regardless of their immigration status.
As supplementary to this campaign, an online petition has been created calling for Australian doctors to unite and support the effort to maintain this important legislation.
The President, Associate Professor John Allan, has asked that members be made aware of the petition.
