Medical Benevolent Association of NSW
The Medical Benevolent Association of NSW (MBANSW) is a free and confidential service. It provides financial assistance and counselling support to all registered medical practitioners, medical students and their families in NSW and ACT (and other necessitous people as determined by the council) during times of need. The Association is also able to provide assistance for the families of deceased Medical Practitioners.
Requests for assistance come from all areas of the medical profession and are primarily from medical practitioners (and their families) who are unwell or impaired. Assistance is aimed at recovery and independence.
MBANSW is a small independent organisation which is managed by a council of up to 20 registered medical practitioners. It has been supporting the doctors of NSW and ACT since 1896. It is funded by tax deductible donations from the medical profession.
