We need your feedback

We thank AMA Victoria members for providing ongoing feedback on the response to COVID-19. Due to the high number of members making contact, we apologise for not always responding immediately. Please do not be discouraged.  All feedback is viewed and acted upon. Views are being collated and passed through to the President of AMA Victoria and AMA Federal (for federal issues) who are in regular contact with the relevant Departments and Ministers' offices. 

Your continued feedback will be vitally important over the coming months so that AMA Victoria can know the issues you are facing and can then advocate on your behalf. 

Please phone Lewis Horton, Communications and Advocacy Officer on (03) 9280 8773 or email Taryn Sheehy, Director of Communication and Advocacy on taryns@amavic.com.au

There have also been issues raised around human resources, supplies, support and infrastructure.
