“The National Health and Hospitals Network will deliver better hospitals by establishing a national hospital network, funded nationally and run locally.

This is the most significant reform to our nation’s health system since the introduction of Medicare.

The National Health and Hospitals Network will:

  • Create a single national network of hospitals, instead of eight separate systems
  • Be funded nationally, with the Australian Government shouldering the majority of the funding burden, which will mean more money is available to meet rising health costs
  • Make sure local doctors and nurses with local expertise are making the important decisions for our local hospitals.
