John Menadue | Golden Opportunity for action in rural health

In an interview with ABC Rural Radio, the CPD’s John Menadue critised healthcare funding and the endemic neglect shown by both the media and government to rural health issues.

John argues that the unqiue position of the country independants allows for real progress to be made in health, an area in which the national party has continuously failed country people. Rural Australia has been ‘dudded’ by the government subsidy to private insurers, the overwhelming proportion of which goes directly to private hospitals in the city.
