Susi Tegen interview on WIN news

The Alliance Chief Executive Susi Tegen spoke to WINNEWS on the Alliance’s recommendations for the upcoming federal budget in May.

The Alliance’s three key recommendations, worth over $25 million, include establishing Primary care Rural Integrated Multidisciplinary Health Services (PRIM-HS) in targeted communities, a National Rural Health Strategy and creation of a RuralHealthConnect Network to bridge evidence and action and to improve the access, effectiveness and translation of government investment in rural programs.

“If we have a National Rural Health Strategy underpinned by a federal and state government compact to work together to address health access and health outcomes for rural people, we would be a little bit further towards solving the problem,” said Ms Tegen.
