VHA Election Alert: edition three

Posted 01 November 2018

With just over three weeks to go until the Victorian Election on Saturday 24 November, for the political parties to make health policy announcements.

Since, the last edition of the Victorian Election Alert, the plethora of hospital infrastructure announcements, while welcome, has slowed.  With postal voting soon to open and the campaigns launched, there are likely to be attention-grabbing announcements from all parties as they look to lead on an essential election issue.

In this edition, further analysis is available on Labor’s campaign launch, the royal commission into mental health, as well as emergency funding for Bush Nursing Centres. All health announcements, so far, are displayed in a table, and were up to date at Wednesday 31 October.

For more information contact Ben Rogers, Advisor Policy and Advocacy by email or phone 9094 7714.
