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.

Making a splash in the fight against Motor Neuron Disease. While the event was fun and brought the community together on a beautiful, warm Saturday morning in Launceston, we all understand the serious side of this.
