RACGP Overview of the Federal Budget 2012-13 (Health and Ageing)
8 May 2012
The RACGP is disappointed that the 2012-13 budget failed to address a number of key recommendations proposed in the College’s pre-budget submission 2012-13.
Whilst it is recognised that spending must be prioritised in the current economic climate, the College believes that the government has missed an opportunity to further strengthen general practice and primary healthcare throughout Australia. Overall, there is minimal new funding for GPs and general practices.
