The need to help colleagues with personal and health problems has long been appreciated by the medical profession. With the support of the Medical Benevolent Association of NSW and the Australian Medical Association (NSW), the Service began in 1982.
We also assist NSW dentists and veterinarians and students in all three professions.
We receive financial support from the Medical Board of Australia, administered by Doctors' Health Services Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the AMA. To support our work on behalf of dentists and veterinarians we receive funding from the Australian Dental Association (NSW). the Dental Board of NSW and the Veterinary Practitioners' Board of NSW.
