Only Labor can be trusted to fix and strengthen our public healthcare system.
Cancer affects 1 in 2 Australians, and all too often, cancer makes you sick, and paying for the treatment makes you poor.
Labor will act.
Our $2.3 billion Medicare Cancer Plan is the biggest cancer care package in Australian history, slashing out-of-pocket costs for cancer patients, including millions of free scans, millions of consultations with oncologists and surgeons, and cheaper medicines.
We will take bold policy steps to fix our public hospitals and strengthen Medicare, for all Australians.
✂️ Reverse Scott Morrison's savage funding cuts to our public hospitals;
🏥 Invest $2.8 billion into our Better Hospitals Fund, ensuring every Australian gets the best care possible; and
💊 List every drug recommended by experts on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme - making life-saving medicines more affordable.
Under Labor, it will always be your Medicare card, not your credit card, that determines your access to quality health care.
