AMA President Dr Steve Hambleton has had a busy fortnight. He spoke at the Social Determinants of Health Public Forum in Sydney about the links between doctors, medicine and social determinants of health. While in Sydney, Dr Hambleton was interviewed by Sky News about election health promises or the lack thereof.

He attended the launch of the Greens’ Medicare policy in Alderley in Brisbane with Greens’ Senator Larissa Waters.

Dr Hambleton spent the rest of his time in Canberra talking with a variety of health organisations and Government officials. Dr Hambleton held a meeting with ASMOF President Dr Tony Sara, AMA ACT President Dr Andrew Miller and ASMOF ACT President Professor Peter Collingnon to discuss collaboration between the two organisations.

Dr Hambleton met with the Secretary of the Department of Health and Ageing Jane Halton to talk e-health and with the Head of Health at Telstra Shane Solomon, as well as Jamie Snashall and Sarah Abbott also from Telstra.
