Associate Professor Owler said it was significant that one of the major messages coming from the Prime Minister’s media conference and the Coalition party room was the need for the Government to consult closely with the medical profession on the controversial Medicare reforms that are hurting the Government.
“The Prime Minister said that ‘good government starts today’. Good health policy must also start today,” A/Prof Owler said.
“It is time to end the uncertainty about the Government’s Medicare plans,” he said.
He joined the program to discuss the AMA’s position.
