A series of five fortnightly 1-hour Covid-19 Discussion Forums for Medicos

The Forum – via Zoom – is part of BSANZ Board‘s Immediate Response to support members, and potentially the wider community of Medical Practitioners, during these disturbing times. We recognise that almost everyone’s capacity to earn has suffered owing to the pandemic. There will be no charge for this Forum.

If you are a Medical Practitioner who would like a Zoom invitation to join the Forum, email co-ordinators Hilary Ash or Mike Fitzgerald 

Dr Michael Fitzgerald, GP in Foster, Victoria, Balint Group Leader
Hilary Ash, Social Worker in Melbourne, Balint Group Leader
Dr Di Nash, retired GP in Auckland, Balint Group Leader
Dr Bill Betts, retired GP and Psychoanalyst in Melbourne, Balint Group Leader
… as well as other experienced Balint Leaders
