President lets Minister and Shadow know the AMA isn’t resting
AMA President Dr Tony Bartone has made quick work of meeting with the MPs that matter most to medicine, following the recent federal election.
Dr Bartone has had separate meetings with newly re-appointed Health Minister Greg Hunt and the new Shadow Healt6h Minister Chris Bowen, who takes over from Catherine King.
He has congratulated both men on their re-elections and their appointments to the health portfolio.
In both meetings, however, the AMA President advocated for more long-term vision for the nation’s healthcare system and for better resourcing.
Dr Bartone said the AMA would continue to work cooperatively with the Government and the Opposition on the important health issues facing the nation.
