General Practitioners recommended by our members.
Since 2013 the Injured Workers Support Network has noticed a worrying trend of GP’s moving away from treating injured workers due to the constraints of the NSW Workers Compensation System. In response we are asking our members if there is a doctor they would recommend to other injured workers. The following is a list of those GP’s
We are not judging the Dr’s in any way and make no promises that your experience with the doctors mentioned will be similar to the recommendation made by our member. We are just passing on what other injured workers have said.
If you have a GP you would like to recommend please go to: IWSN Workers Compensation General Practitioners short survey
