BETTER HEALTHCARE FOR ALL

‘Victoria’s doctors, nurses, healthcare workers and carers have looked after and supported Victorians through the COVID-19 crisis. A good government would look after them.’

Everyone deserves the right to quality health care, regardless of how much they earn.

But healthcare services in Victoria are often underfunded and stretched thin, making it hard for people to get the best possible care when they need it.

Care workers, who are mostly women, are often poorly paid and in insecure work.

We need to invest in our healthcare system and care workers.

As an MP, I will continue to advocate for:

  • A well-funded and well-resourced public healthcare system
  • More well-paid and secure jobs for nurses, carers, mental health workers and other healthcare workers
  • More Victorians to have access to public dental services
  • An approach to community health that recognises and addresses systemic barriers to health and wellbeing
  • Investment in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander controlled organisations developed to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • Drug use to be treated as a health issue, not a criminal issue
  • Community mental health services to be expanded

Melbourne should have a world-class public healthcare system that takes care of our care workers, and ensures that everyone can get the care they need when they need it.
