Medical Benevolent Association of NSW




In the past 12 months MBANSW has experienced a 54% increase in the demand for our services. This increase has occurred for many reasons, including the additional stress placed on our front-line doctors, as well as the financial impact of the COVID19 pandemic. Some city-based practices have experienced a 90% drop in patient attendance rates with many workplaces yet to return to the city. Many specialists also saw their income come to a virtual standstill during lockdown. Other doctors and their families suffered significant loss of both homes and livelihoods during the bushfires and floods that occurred earlier in the year. This coupled with a general trend of increasing rates of Domestic Violence and Mental Health issues has seen MBANSW only able to assist in approximately 65% of cases that requested financial assistance.

If we could get every doctor in NSW and the ACT to provide a single, tax-deductible gift of $15 today, MBANSW would be able to assist 100% of your peers, colleagues and their family members who are in the midst of a crisis and need counselling and financial assistance to be able to get through their difficulty and return to independence. 

Could we count on you to help today so that we can help every day?

Doctors dedicate their lives to helping others, but they are certainly not immune to serious illness, family tragedy, accidents or mental illness. MBANSW is here to support doctors and their families through a crisis and get them back to work whenever possible.

MBANSW provides a holistic, confidential, non-judgemental avenue of support and care for doctors in need. 

The MBANSW is very fortunate to have 14 esteemed Medical Professionals on the Council who volunteer their time and expertise for this cause. The Council reviews every request for support and takes great care to ensure that the funds given so generously are used carefully.
