The report has highlighted many recommendations of value to surgical practice. However, there are some aspects of this Report that RACS would like to provide our commentary and critique, as well as avenues for improvement.  

RACS acknowledges that the Commonwealth Minister for Health has yet to consider the recommendations and RACS is prepared to provide additional advice via a ministerial and departmental meeting. 

RACS broadly supports the recommendations provided by the Taskforce to the Minister but wishes to comment in more depth on some areas of specific interest or concern.
