The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners - Revocation & Substitution - A91024


The RACGP has applied for the revocation of authorisation A90795, and its substitution by a new authorisation A91024. The RACGP is seeking immunity to allow GPs in certain business structures to agree on patient fees; and to agree on the fees they charge as visiting medical officers to hospitals.

On 23 May 2007 the ACCC granted authorisation to the RACGP for intra-practice price setting arrangements and hospital agreements for a period of 4 years. The arrangements apply to general practitioners and other medical practitioners in general
practice in associateships and partnerships, who operate as a team, where they share patient records, have common facilities, a common trading name and common policies and procedures.
