Help us make health and aged care a priority this election
With a federal election set for 2 July, we are launching a campaign to highlight the policy and announcements of all key parties on health and aged care. It’s getting harder for nurses and midwives to provide the level of expert care our patients need, with significant cuts to health and aged care. This election we are asking for:
- Public Healthcare - Restoration of the $57 billion in cuts to health care make by the coalition in the 2014/15 budget.
- Aged Care - Safe staffing in aged care including a registered nurse on site 24/7 for facitiles with high care residents and the regulation of all assistants in nursing/personal care workers who assist in the delivery nursing care and nursing services
- Medicare - removing the freeze on GP Medicare rebates, a commitment to bulkbilling for out of hospital pathology tests
- Penalty rates – a commitment to the protection of penalty rates for all workers including nurses, midwives and assistants in nursing.
