Dmv has confirmed to The Age it will be closing a branch in Melbourne.
Dmv’s decision follows a complaint from the ABC regarding its practice in Adelaide, with a petition to the ABC and the Department of Health calling for a return of the business to the State.
Dwight Smith, president of the South Australian Medical Association, said he was disappointed by the decision and said he would be seeking legal advice before taking legal action.
“I would be interested to hear from the State Government and from the Department in Adelaide as to what it plans to do about it,” Mr Smith said.
Mr Smith said his organisation supported Dmve in its decision to close its Melbourne branch.””
We are not going to tolerate it any longer.”
Mr Smith said his organisation supported Dmve in its decision to close its Melbourne branch.
“We support all businesses and any business which provides quality care for our patients and our community,” he said.
“We don’t have any issues with the medical profession, and we have no issues with our doctors or our hospital staff.”
But we have to be very clear that the medical services that we provide to our community and our patients are not to be taken for granted.
“Mr Dymv has said it will not accept payments from Dmvis, but Mr Smith and the South Australia Medical Association are concerned about its ability to pay out of pocket.”
They will be taking money out of our pockets,” Mr Dymav said.
He said the closure would have an impact on the quality of care provided to South Australians.”
If you’re going to close a medical branch in the State, we have a responsibility to make sure that we’re providing the same level of care that’s provided to patients in the community,” Mr Jones said.
