All of us at AAPM are deeply saddened by the devastation caused by the bushfire crisis taking place across Australia. Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by the fires.
We know that many practice managers in affected areas are facing difficult circumstances both personally and professionally. As well as working in collaboration with other organisations offering support, AAPM has established a HELPLINE (0484 597 191) to provide administrative support for practices that have been affected by the bushfires through a call-back service. Our HELPLINE facilitates access to experienced practice managers who can provide the specific skill set(s) needed to assist you to keep your practice and business running.
If your practice has been impacted by the recent bushfire crisis and you would like support from AAPM, please call the AAPM HELPLINE on 0484 597 191 (between 8:30am and 5:00pm AEDT, Monday – Friday) with your contact details and a practice manager will call you back within 24 hrs.
Contact can also be made by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
