Federal Election 2016
The RACGP is running a dedicated advocacy campaign during the 2016 federal election to communicate with politicians and other stakeholders about the issues that matter to GPs for the next term of government.
The RACGP’s 2016 Election Statement and the campaign materials on this page were informed by a member survey on RACGP election priorities conducted during April 2016.
We encourage you to engage in the campaign and use the materials available to discuss this election and your priorities for the next term of government with patients, colleagues and your local candidates.
