PSA Urges Opposition Rethink on eHEALTH

(News released by PSA)

Proposals by the Coalition to abolish eHealth measures if it wins Government would be detrimental to the health of Australian consumers, the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia says.

The Shadow Minister for Finance and Debt Reduction, Andrew Robb, said today that a Coalition government would scrap the planned $467 million eHealth strategy.

However, National President of the PSA, Warwick Plunkett, urged the Coalition to think beyond politics when making health policy.
