Responding to the bushfire crisis
For GPs, the NSW Rural Doctors Network is co-ordinating with partners, including AMA (NSW), to accept expressions of interest in volunteering to help.
GPs are being sought for work both during the immediate crisis and in the months ahead as communities rebuild.
RDN has nominated three main phases in which this help will be necessary and is looking for volunteers for these time periods:
- Emergency response (January 2020)
- Medium term (February - June 2020)
- Long term (Post June 2020)
While we know there is an immediate need and interest, it’s going to be even more important to consider what happens after.
You can find more information on that and the expression of interest form here.
The RDN will also be working to co-ordinate information about what is happening in local communities and all of the involved organisations will be working together on an ongoing basis.
