Congratulations Margie!

Congratulations to Margie Pippos from Brewarinna who received a brand new iPad for participating in the 2020 Rural and Remote Communities Healthcare Survey.

The Survey is the only one of its type that asks rural and remote people to share their views and priorities for rural and remote health in Australia.

The survey found that more than 86 percent of rural and remote residents believe that GP access has not improved, and more than 80 percent believe that rural hospital emergency services have not improved, over the last 5 years.

Rural and remote people want governments to invest more to increase Medicare rebates for existing rural doctors to reflect the cost of doing business in the bush; invest in infrastructure grants for rural practices; and improve support to get more doctors into rural and remote practice.
