We are proud to announce that OccPhyz Consulting is an approved Spirometry Practice. Also, Dr Cunneen has been added to the register of approved doctors.
The Department of Natural Resources and Mines (DNRM) has introduced a register of doctors, X-ray imaging practices and spirometry practices that offer health services to Queensland’s coal mine workers. Use of the register is currently voluntary ahead of any legislative changes; however, Queensland’s major coal companies have agreed to transition to the use of providers on the register.
OccPhyz Consulting meet the specified criteria to be included on the register and have now been added as an approved Spirometry Practice.
The register is part of the government’s response to the Independent Monash review of the respiratory component of the Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme. It is also compatible with the Parliamentary Select Committee inquiry into coal workers’ pneumoconiosis (PDF, 8.7MB), which generally supports the Monash recommendations.
The register will be updated regularly as new doctors and providers are added.
OccPhyz continues to ensure all of our occupational health services are conducted to national and international standards.
