The Medical Evacuation Response Group (Medevac Group) is a partnership of specialist refugee support organisations working together for a safe, orderly and effective implementation of applications under the “medevac legislation”. See merg.org.au/
There are several groups of doctors required to work on the application process. There are different time commitments and skills required for the different roles, however if there is even a little time you can offer to assist, that would be greatly appreciated. The work is pro bono and time commitment is up to you.
