“Spirometry practice registration” with Department of Natural Resources & Mines
The Dept Natural Resources & Mines (DNRM) has launched the register of doctors and medical providers that offer health services to QLD coal mine workers. This is currently voluntary, however the major coal companies have agreed to transition to using providers from this register. To maintain registration with Dept. Natural Resources and Mines, doctors &medical providers must meet the new standards (see below) and comply with ongoing audit requirements. More information can be found here.
