Have your say: Budgets and State Election consultations
Posted 22 September 2017
Attend a session and have your say on the things that matter most.
The Victorian and Commonwealth budgets will be handed down in early May 2018, while a Victorian election will be held on Saturday 24 November next year. These events provide us with the opportunity to influence budget outcomes and help shape party platforms in relation to health.
As the peak body for Victoria’s public healthcare sector, and as we have done in previous years, the VHA will put forward submissions reflecting member views, issues and opportunities. This year, however, we are changing the way we go about it.
We will be proactively seeking your views through a series of discussions and facilitated workshops, to make sure we hear what matters most and that our advocacy is as effective as possible.
This process will lead to submissions that are comprehensive and, importantly, compelling. They will include ideas and opportunities that are actionable and realistic as well as recommendations that are big and bold and focused on solving whole-of-system issues.
We’re inviting CEOs, members of executive teams, boards and other relevant team members from VHA member organisations, to register here for one of the following sessions:
Wednesday 11 October, 1.30-3.30pm
Thursday 12 October, 9.00-11.00am
Melbourne (metro hospital focus)
Friday 13 October, 11am-1.30pm
Wednesday 18 October, 11.00am -1.30pm
Melbourne (community health service focus)
Friday 20 October, 10.30am-12.30pm
Share this information with relevant team members within your organisation. Further details, including information about venues, will be available soon.
For more information contact a member of the VHA policy team on 9094 7777.
