Chief negotiator for the Visiting Medical Officers (VMO) in the 3 year old VMO contract dispute, Dr Ross Cartmill has the complete support of the Queensland orthopaedic VMOs.

The message has been conveyed to him by the QLD Chairman of ASOS, Dr Kelly Macgroarty, “Dr Cartmill is simply trying to ensure that Qld patients have access to quality medical care in their public hospitals. He has put a very reasonable position in front of the Qld Department of Health who have decided to leave this matter unresolved for 3 long years,” he said. “This matter needs to be resolved urgently. It should not be left on the agenda prior to Christmas,” Dr Macgroarty said.
