The 10th wave of the MABEL (Medicine in Australia: Balancing Employment and Life) Survey has recently been sent to over 20,000 doctors in Australia who have previously responded.  This is a unique chance to contribute to independent and rigorous evidence about doctors working lives and how they are affected by the health care system. Those who have filled it out before should have received a letter or email.  If you have not filled it out but would like to, please go to  and sign up to be included. We wholeheartedly appreciate the time you spend in filling out the survey – it really is making a difference.
