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.

Continuing our work to give Tasmanians the health system they deserve. I'm absolutely determined to keep up the work needed to take our hospitals to the next level, on the foundation of the vital improvements we've already made.

I will place my statement as a comment below.

Enjoy your weekend, we will never stop working for you.

I can honestly commend from our end the Hospital, particularly the Holman clinic for the support & quick action when it comes to my husband Robert Keogh ever since he was diagnosed with stage 4 terminal Bowel cancer we've had everything done for us to make our journey easier even down to when his mother passed away 2 weeks into his treatment of cancer as well !! Thanku

I agree Shelley, there is too much negativity in the media regarding our hospitals and the supposed "health crisis". This government and this minister are doing an outstanding job, always admitting there is more to do, but pressing on and funding and initiating positive changes. They are to be commended for the turnaround that has been achieved, even more so considering the debacle left by the labor/green govt. Keep up the good fight Will Hodgman Michael Ferguson and the team behind that support you.

Shelley I am so sorry to hear that Robert has been so ill and it was a shock to find out that Elva has passed away. Jenny and I send our condolences and best wishes to your family. I hope Mike is okay please send him our thoughts and that we are thinking of him.
