The ANMF election priorities are:
ANMF Federal Secretary, Annie Butler, said today: “In our wealthy, well-resourced and highly-developed country, every Australian should be able to expect and receive the very best health and aged care, delivered in a timely fashion, according to their wishes, in a place of their choosing. To achieve this, genuine, significant and sustained reform is urgently required.
“The ANMF has written to all political parties and independent politicians to seek their commitment on our five-priority issues for the upcoming federal election and the specific actions the next Government will need to take to ensure real reform in the health and aged care systems. Our politicians must place the health and well-being of the Australian people at the heart of their policies – they can achieve this by addressing the ANMF’s five-core priorities.”
The ANMF will be sharing politicians’ responses to its election priorities with its 310,000 members and supporters.
