Response to AMA Tasmania President

The Hodgman Government is committed to providing the best possible health care for all Tasmanians. Since 2014 we have been steadily working to improve the system with increased investments and the One Health System reforms which were widely consulted and strongly supported by all health organisations including the AMA. We don’t believe the system is as good as it should be. But the improvements that have been achieved need to be consolidated and built upon.

Taking calls at the Give Me Five For Kids telethon. Tasmanians are being very generous and it's an honour to be part of the team.

Victoria just took my call as a real donor to show me how it's done! Now I'm ready to take your call.

I took this photo around 8am this morning of the beautiful Mount Roland just south of Sheffield...basking in the morning sunrise.

I was taking the central plateau route on my way to visit Queenstown for a cabinet meeting and of course to call on our wonderful staff at the Queenstown Hospital. The photo has no effects or filters... Just gorgeous and in the raw! And yes, it was freezing at the time!

(Now heading back to Launceston for the Give Me Five For Kids telethon at Southern Cross News Tasmania)
