1. The Australian Doctors’ Fund (ADF) maintains that the so-called ‘Review of the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme for Health Professions’ is neither an independent nor an objective review. It is in fact the health bureaucracy reviewing itself. The review assumes that the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (NRAS) as established is at best in need of refinement. As such, the review lacks the courage to challenge the questionable way in which national registration was implemented and hence the defects of NRAS are likely to be perpetuated to the detriment of the Australian public.
