AMA welcomes Stronger Rural Health Strategy
The AMA welcomes tonight’s Budget announcement of a range of initiatives to improve access to health services for rural and regional Australians.
AMA President, Dr Michael Gannon, said that many of the initiatives – outlined in the Stronger Rural Health Strategy as part of the Health Budget – are a direct response to AMA rural health policies and the AMA Budget Submission.
“We welcome the Government’s strong focus in this Budget on improving access to doctors in underserviced communities, particularly rural Australia,” Dr Gannon said.
