GP turns to homemade PPE to combat ‘patchy’ supply
Dr Mukesh Haikerwal, a former AMA President, has consistently called out the supply issue that has plagued GPs in the state and across the country since the start of the pandemic. The respiratory clinic set up at Dr Haikerwal’s practice in Altona North, in the city’s southwest, is currently testing around 120 patients a day for COVID-19. Although the practice managed to procure some face masks and gowns, supply from the National Medical Stockpile and the state government had been “patchy” and wasn’t enough to cover the practice’s testing needs.
