    " How can a doctor prescribe any medication or other substance without physically seeing the patient he or she is prescribing for? I have had this discussion with several GP’s and they agree that this is a very unusual and out of the ordinary practice."

    So, when I consult with my medical specialist (who practices >400 km away), I need to drive there and back for a 5 minute consultation, thereby exposing myself and my family to the extra risk of being on the road unnecessarily?

    Taken directly from the Federal Inquiry website......

    Submissions should be prepared solely for the inquiry and should not have been previously published. They should comment on at least one of the terms of reference. You may wish to include facts, opinions and arguments and recommendations for action.
    Interpret it as you like......

    In your case, I assume your specialist has at least met you personally at one stage. My specialist is in Qld, I have met her on two occasion when she was in Sydney and I was in hospital.
    From what I have seen of Nicopharm, and what was covered in that submission, they have never met their customers and they do not even give a physical address whereby you can consult with their doctor.

    At least with Collin Mendelson, you could physically go to his practice to get a script.

    Whilst I am mentioning the above doctor, I note that he has been silent on this new inquiry and neither have I seen anything on the website from that doctor that heads up the NNA AU.

    AFAIK neither submission has appeared on their website. One was emailed to me and the other I read on another forum as I said. I can give that forums link if the moderators permit.

    There are many people out there that would love to do a submission, I have been very busy in advocacy in this matter. People have emailed me over 25 drafts of their submissions for comments and proof reading. The ones posted here were posted to help those that may want to do so but are shy in so doing. The three submissions that have appeared here were drafts.

    I don't quite understand what you are saying, sorry?

    What I am saying is that the website says submissions should not be published previously.

    Posting a submission on a forum or social media could be interrupted as it being "published". My concern is if this is discovered it could possibly render the submission invalid.

    Whether this is correct, or likely, I don't know.....

    Draft submissions Laurie are not actual submissions, the actual sent submission is the one that should not appear on forum. i,e, if you copy and past a submission from their website. Then it could be rendered invalid. All that I have posted here were drafts. which I reviewed and some altered before I emailed them back to the people that sent them to me.

    Even if you post the name of the person that appears on their website saying read this one by xxx could render it invalid.

    "Posting a submission on a forum or social media could be interrupted as it being 'published' ".

    From my understanding of the meaning of the term "published" in this age of digital media, any post is interpreted as being published (something everyone should be aware of).

    Agree @gtadmin the final copy and not the draft.

    It's definitely a grey area ff, and you may well be correct.

    The way I read it, it's perfectly OK to copy and post from their website, as they have already been submitted. Posting submissions prior to submission seems to be what's objected to?

    I could be completely wrong though.......
