This document outlines the next stage of our health reforms, to deliver substantial improvements in the quality and availability of health care for Australians.

For the first time, Australians will have a guarantee that they won’t have to wait too long for elective surgery.

For the first time, a four hour National Access Target will be established for hospital emergency departments.

For the first time, the Government will pay for better health outcomes rather than just one-off visits to doctors and specialists – through our plan for personalised care for patients with one of Australia’s most common chronic diseases, diabetes.

For the first time, the Government will assume full responsibility for aged care in Australia, allowing us to deliver immediate improvements to help older Australians and their families better navigate the aged care system.

The Government will deliver record investments in training more doctors and allied health workers – so that in the future, patients can get better access to health services when they need them.”
