We’ve seen the impacts of the pandemic on our healthcare system here in Victoria. I will work with all levels of government to invest in the health of Victoria, lobbying to:

  • Prioritise community-based mental health services which will encompass specific outpatient treatment services and continuing care services designed to meet the needs of our community.
  • Address the challenges present in current waitlist management in Victoria and backlog due to suspended elective surgeries during the pandemic.
  • Support strategies to mitigate staffing shortages, investing in training healthcare workers and bolster healthcare recruitment.
