Meet the RACGP candidates: Dr Chris Irwin

Political RACGP TheHill

In just over a week RACGP members will have the chance to vote on their next college president.

We have invited all six candidates onto the podcast to answer questions about telehealth, GP advocacy and how the college can keep its members now, and attract more in the future.

This episode features Dr Chris Irwin, a Victorian GP, and practice owner of two clinics, in Diamond Creek and Ivanhoe.

In my view, this podcast was very revealing. Chris just nailed every issue. Especially how hamstrung the college has been, tied to non-disclosure agreements ‘forced’ on them by Govt – in effect muzzling them. Also the need for a union, and to engage professional lobbyists like the pharmacy guild. The relatively small amount of the 80million budget actually spent on GP welfare generally, including lobbying, CPD, etc.
I think he is a serious contender for President of the college.
