A Melbourne GP clinic has been accused of discrimination after a photo showing different fees charged for seeing female and male doctors was shared online.
On Wednesday, writer Maeve Marsden posted an image to Twitter of a sign in her friend’s doctors office – identified as Myhealth North Eltham.
“This is so f**ked,” she wrote. “My friend… goes to Eltham North Clinic in Victoria and they’ve just instituted extra fees for female doctors because ‘women’s issues take longer.’ Surely this is illegal?”
This is so fucked. My friend @TheMilkeWay goes to Eltham North Clinic in #Victoria and they’ve just instituted extra fees for female doctors because “women’s issues take longer.” Surely this is illegal? pic.twitter.com/Vwm0aafM1z
