The AMA (WA) recognises that Private Specialist Practice is an essential component of our health system, alleviating demand on public hospitals

Private practitioners in WA face a number of unique challenges including rising healthcare costs, increasingly complex care, and funders of private specialist care seeking to drive down costs.

Private Specialist Practice is an essential component of our health system.

The AMA (WA) aims to support Private Specialist Practice practitioners through:

  • representation on the AMA (WA)’s peak policy-making body;
  • the provision of industrial advice and representation, where appropriate;
  • seminars and training opportunities for private specialists and their staff;
  • practice management advice and employment advice for doctors who employ staff; and
  • Federal and WA advocacy and political representation.
