My speech in Parliament on Medicare - March 28, 2017

My constituents of Calwell reject the Turnbull Government's attack on Medicare.

My constituents want this government to drop its savage health cuts. They want this government to begin investing in the future of our healthcare system - a healthcare system that provides access to the best quality healthcare and medical services for all Australians regardless of their socio-economic status.

In the speech, I paid tribute to the many caring GP services in my electorate, who are desperately trying to remain affordable to the underprivileged and under serviced community they serve.

Universal healthcare is an Australian way of life, valued by all Australians, and this government has been well and truly put on notice.
