2022 Election Candidate Responses to AMPS

 

Help Improve Australia's Healthcare System 

Our politicians must do better for their constituencies. We respectfully demand transparency, trustworthiness and accountability from our elected representatives. AMPS requests a seat at the table of public health engagement, free from government censorship and control. The health and well-being of our nation is at a critical junction and our future social and economic prosperity depends on good governance.

Following a survey of AMPS members on what is important to them, on 10 May 2022 we wrote to all political candidates running in the upcoming Federal Election.  Please click here to see the letter.

Please see below the responses received to date.
