Australian Health Minister receives recommendations

Yesterday the 10th National Rural Health Conference closed with the arrival of the Australian Health Minister, Nicola Roxon, who received around 25 recommendations that had been compiled from the floor over the three days of the conference. Walking slowly on a recently sprained ankle that she assured me was due to a slip on a floor while she was hurrying, Minister Roxon’s address to the conference was well-received. While the economic downturn has created some restraint, the rural health industry is only too happy that the Australian Government has decided to go into serious deficit to keep this national society moving forward.

Conference papers and the recommendation will shortly be on the NRHA website.
