I welcome the appointment of Greg Hunt as the federal Health Minister.

The Premier and I have already been in touch with Mr Hunt this morning.

I am now making arrangements to catch up with the new Health Minister in person, as soon as possible, to continue negotiations on the Mersey Community Hospital and our important health reform agenda to rebuild Tasmania’s health system.

As we have repeatedly said, we will fight tooth and nail to ensure we get the best deal for North West residents and Tasmania.

The Hodgman Liberal Government will continue to advocate strongly for Tasmanians with the federal Government.
