VHA budget breakfast forum

Posted 05 May 2016

The VHA hosted a successful budget breakfast forum exclusively for members this morning. VHA CEO Tom Symondson provided a summary of key health highlights and impacts of the 2016-17 State and Commonwealth budgets. 

“It’s a big tick for the State budget’s funding of regional Victorian health capital. The VHA lobbied the State Government extensively for a significant investment in health capital for regional and rural Victoria. We are pleased to see its response - a $200 million Regional Health Infrastructure Fund."

“Hospitals can't fund shiny new things if the old things are faulty," My Symondson said.

Scott Hartley, partner from Grant Thornton, leading tax and advisory firm Grant Thornton presented an overview of the Federal budget implications and trends.

“The Federal budget was well considered but safe and uninspired,” he said. "Interesting Federal budget. NOT,” Mr Hartley said.
