Submission – Inquiry into rural health services in Tasmania

12 March 2021

The National Rural Health Alliance (the Alliance) welcomes the opportunity to present a submission to the Parliament of Tasmania Government Administration A Sub-Committee, Inquiry into Rural Health Services.

In this submission, we seek to highlight the most important issues facing Tasmanians in terms of access to health and hospital services.

We advocate for local solutions to local issues, recognising that metropolitan solutions do not necessarily work in a rural, regional and remote backdrop. This gives us a particular interest in the situation in each state and territory, and the models of care being trialled or implemented in rural areas.
