Health

As Minister for Health, 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 Morrison 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.

Health is essential to ensuring all Australians can lead fulfilling lives.
