This month’s featured blog post
Equal Pay for Equal Work?
The NDIS new Price Guide is out and Physios are going to get paid $30 an hour more than any other allied health professionals!!! Does this make sense?
Why hasn’t any SA data or other fee schedules been used as references for OT’s when setting fees for OT’s in SA (and Australia wide)? e.g. RTWSA OT fee schedule, Lifetime Support Authority data, WA WorkCover. Why isn’t the physio and OT hourly rate the same?
Have OT’s traditionally not been assertive enough?
Is now the right time to correct this historical blip and respect our OT’s?
Are there any physiotherapists who will step up and support their OT colleagues in calling for fairness and equity?
