Visiting Medical Practitioners

Visiting Medical Practitioners (VMPs), both general practitioners and specialists, are contracted to supply medical services for public patients in government non-tertiary hospitals throughout Western Australia. VMPs are independent contractors operating medical businesses and are not employees.

Those negotiations were very complex with a raft of considerations being taken into account.
