We support the long-standing arrangement for doctors to retain earnings from treating private patients in our public hospitals.

If the TIC ruling was not challenged, we could see precious public health dollars diverted to a 35% salary loading for salaried doctors, at the expense of patient care.

We are appealing the ruling of Commissioner Abey to the full bench, which is an entirely normal part of the industrial process.

We will accept the ruling of the full bench and trust that the doctors will do likewise.
