AUSTRALIAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (WA)
The Association has been informed that a number of practices have been approached with the offer of a free listing in the Australasian Health Professionals Directory.
The fine print of the contract shows that the listing in fact costs $1300 a year for a minimum of three years, and will continue on for a further year if not cancelled.
We are advised that medical practices are being charged up to $5200 for listing in the Australasian Health Professional Directory. There are a range of other concerns about the material that doctors have received, including the fact that the website www.auahp.com does not currently appear to exist, and the listing form asks for a great deal of information that puts participants at risk of identity fraud.
On no account should doctors or practices make any payment or provide credit card details.
Those who have signed up to Australasian Health Professionals Directory should immediately send a follow up communication rescinding their participation. Doctors and practices that receive demands for payment or financial information from Australasian Health Professionals Directory should immediately contact the local Office of Fair Trading or the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
