Letter to the Editor - New Norfolk & Derwent Valley News

We all know how tough it can be to make a GP booking or access the medical care you need, especially for Tasmanians living outside the big cities.

Labor understands.

That's why we've led the charge for a Senate Inquiry into GP and health related services in outer metropolitan, rural and regional Australia.

But we need your contributions.

They are the key to turning this issue around. 

Please take the time to share your experiences and feedback on current health care provisions in non-metro areas.

For details on how to makes a submission, visit www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Committees/Senate/How_to_make_a_submission.

Alternatively, you can contact my Tasmanian Federal Labor colleagues - Senator Anne Urquhart and Senator Catryna Bilyk.

Both are members of the Senate Community Affairs References Committee overseeing this inquiry and will be very happy to assist you.
