Mr Turnbull and the Liberal Government cannot be trusted to protect Medicare. They are destroying Medicare by:
- Extending the GP co-payment by stealth for another 6 years which is driving bulk-billing down and out-of-pocket costs up.
- Ripping funding from pathology and diagnostic imaging, making people with chronic illnesses pay more for vital tests and scans; and
- Cutting $600 million from health workforce training which will mean fewer doctors, nurses and other health care professionals in our hospitals.
Mr Turnbull's attack on Medicare will make quality health care unaffordable for hard working Australians.
