• What is appropriate treatment?

    For GST purposes, a recognised health professional provides appropriate treatment if they:

    • assess a patient's health
    • work out a course of action to preserve, restore or improve the patient's physical or psychological wellbeing as far as their training allows
    • supply a treatment that is generally accepted by their profession as being appropriate for the patient.

    Appropriate treatment includes further treatments and preventative medicine.
