Liberals release positive plan for health system

Jeremy Rockliff, Minister for Health

The Rockliff Liberal Government has released its long-term vision of Tasmanian health services over the next 20 years.

The Our Healthcare Future: Advancing Tasmania’s Health document details the policy direction the Government will take as they look to build a world-class, innovative and more connected system.

It foreshadows the Government’s broader Our Healthcare Future plan – set to be released in early 2023 – that outlines the priority initiatives and actions that will help achieve its vision.

Premier Jeremy Rockliff said that the release of this document was an exciting milestone in implementing the Government’s bold reform agenda.

“Advancing Tasmania’s Health will be central to delivering our positive plan of a more connected health system,” Premier Rockliff said.

“We are excited at the opportunities to continue to build our health workforce, strengthen preventative care, increase accessibility in the community and upgrade health infrastructure for generations to come.”

“The Rockliff Liberal Government is investing more funding into health than any other government before us and we are seeing the positive impacts of this investment. We know there is more to do, which is why our long-term agenda is critical to building upon the strong progress already made.”

Premier Rockliff recognised that partnering with consumers and clinicians will be critical to getting the job done and said that he looks forward to working with them on this journey.

The document has incorporated valuable feedback received from a wide range of stakeholders and members of the public following consultation undertaken earlier this year.

The Government thanked the organisations and individuals who contributed to the consultation process.
