Reforms in the Private Health Sector and Getting Involved with Associations | Grow Your Clinic Podcast | 080

Today on the podcast, we have Scott Willis with us from the Australian Physiotherapy Association. Scott is also the owner of Coastal Physiotherapy, a multidisciplinary clinic which specializes in solving musculoskeletal injury and pain with physio, exercise physiology and clinical pilates.

We are going to talk about how you as a clinic owner in private practice can engage with your association, why clinic owners should join an association, changes in policies surrounding telehealth, private health insurance and other issues, what the APA is currently up to and so. Much. More.

“The association has really stepped back and thought private practice is really a significant entity within our profession, and we need to be able to develop the private practice because I think in the future, the private practice is going to be the main employer of any physio coming out.”

“You can be a good physio and be a poor business person as well.”
