Health & Sport

As Minister for Health and Sport, Greg is committed to ensuring all Australians are able to see a doctor when they need to and can receive medicine when they are unwell.

Health is about working with our excellent nurses, doctors, researchers, and all our healthcare professionals.

The Turnbull Government has a rock solid commitment to Medicare. It is key to Australia's successful healthcare system.

Mental health is an issue that is particularly important to Greg. He wants to be a strong advocate for greater understanding and community awareness, and to ensure we have the necessary resources to help deal with this very important issue.

Greg is a keen sportsman and sports dad. In the Sports portfolio he will work towards increasing participation in sport.

Participating in sport improves our health, brings communities together, inspires us and is quintessential to Australian culture.

Health and Sport are essential to ensuring all Australians can lead fulfilling lives.
