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.
