Our Medical Directors are vital in maintaining the excellent standard of clinical care our doctors are able to provide to our patients.
They are heavily involved in recruitment and onboarding, mentoring and supervising as well as providing 24/7 clinical support to our network of doctors across WA and QLD.
Dial A Doctor conducts a Clinical Advisory Board meeting each month with our Medical Directors where they review our quality controls, triaging, and clinical frameworks.
