More than half a million Australians delayed or did not visit a GP because of cost.

Australians need a healthcare system which will take pressure off of our public hospitals, emergency departments and GP surgeries, while providing affordable and accessible community healthcare for all.

Over half a million Australians have delayed visiting a GP due to the cost of healthcare. Meanwhile, out-of-control waiting times with local GPs have forced regular Australians to visit hospital emergency departments for routine healthcare.

Because of this, Australia has some of the highest out-of-pocket health expenses when compared to comparable countries. Let’s work together to fix the system.
