Practice with confidence
General practice is a unique and holistic discipline with GPs contributing to the evolution of healthcare based on their individual interests. We understand that not all GPs are the same and offer three categories on membership. These are:
- GP non-procedural
- GP procedural
- GP procedural including anaesthetics and/or obstetrics.
Under these categories, GPs may be able to apply for an endorsement for ‘minor cosmetic services’.
To find out about our extensive list of activities covered under these categories view the Member Handbook.
If you are like many practitioners and work in your own practice, you may also be eligible for MIPS’ practice staff cover that is part of membership. This protects you from the acts, errors and omissions of practice staff such as practice managers, receptionists and assistants in relation to the healthcare you provide. Healthcare for which practitioners are required to be Ahpra registered are excluded (eg. administration of vaccines).
For more detail on MIPS cover for GPs, view the Member Handbook.
