The Victorian Emergency Physicians Association Inc. (VEPA) was formed in 2010 to represent the interests and concerns of emergency physicians across the full spectrum of contemporary issues.
Working with emergency physicians state-wide, VEPA is here to assist with your working practice in all of its aspects – from safe and efficient patient care to improving working conditions, and maintaining wellness of healthcare workers.
Together we will make a difference
Since 2010 VEPA has demonstrated that colleges who stand together win together. We have assisted in the negotiation of numerous enterprise agreements, as well as assisting individuals and groups of physicians with their workplace concerns. VEPA’s two-pronged approach of improving the employment arrangements for physicians on the one hand, and lobbying government and accreditation bodies for reform on the other represents a holistic approach.
The precedent has been established, but there is still work to do. Doctors must continue to join forces and make their voices heard. Further, by pooling the resources of our craft-group and channelling its appetite for proactive change, we can create an even stronger, more respected and influential advocate and achieve what is beyond our capability as individuals.
