We want to ensure our healthcare system remains in public hands. The government is currently collecting responses for a survey on whether or not Australians would like private health insurers to cover GP care, pathology and radiology tests like X-rays.
We're concerned that this survey is just a ruse in order to bring about more privatisation and we want our public health system to put patients before profits.
We call on the Health Minister to commit to protecting our public healthcare system and to rule out any further privatisation.
Why is this important?
Health care is a universal right and should be about patient care, not profit. The Ministers' survey is a smokescreen designed to push for further privatisation and erosion of Medicare.
We will all suffer if health care becomes a race to the bottom only focused on the bottom line.
