The Medical Benevolent Association of NSW-ACT (MBA NSW-ACT) is a registered ACNC charity run by Doctors for Doctors and their families. We provide counselling, case management referral and short-term financial assistance through times of crisis, illness, accident, mental health conditions, grief and loss of income to help doctors in NSW and ACT to recover and return to well-being and independence. We also run preventative workshops and peer support programs as well as actively advocating to improve the systems and workplaces that doctors work in.
A career in medicine comes with a range of challenges. The demanding training pathway, followed by long shifts in a complex culture and responsibility for life-threatening situations with stressed patients. Add to this load the global pandemic, healthcare workers leaving in droves, multiple natural disasters, a drastic shortage of GPs in rural and remote areas and unrelenting negative press, and we have the ingredients for a perfect storm.
This perfect storm has seen the MBA NSW-ACT increase our services by over 75% in the past four years.
HOWEVER, WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW MORE THAN EVER AS DEMAND OUTSTRIPS OUR ABILITY TO FUND
THE COSTS OF FINANCIALLY SUPPORTING THESE DOCTORS DUE TO THE INCRESING COST OF LIVING .
PLEASE DONATE (a little more than normal) NOW.
