What is ASMOFQ?
The Australian Salaried Medical Officers' Federation (ASMOF) and its state counterpart, the Queensland Branch of the Australian Salaried Medical Officers Federation (ASMOFQ) represents salaried doctors in industrial negotiations and in workplace disputes.
Broadly, ASMOFQ's objectives are:
- to promote and protect the broad interests of salaried medical practitioners;
- to provide services to its members; and
- to advocate the provision and development of quality health services.
As Queensland's doctors' union, ASMOFQ aims to protect doctor's industrial rights and ensure they are protected and enhanced.
