AMA President Dr Michael Gannon will address the National Press Club on Wednesday, 23 August 2017.

The National Press Club is Australia’s leading forum for discussion and debate and for major statements on politics and public policy. Decision makers, Australian political leaders, foreign heads of state and leaders from all fields of society are among the speakers at the National Press Club.

Dr Gannon will use his National Press Club address to outline the AMA’s priorities for health reform, and suggest the types of health policies that the major parties should take to the next election, which could be as early as next year.

The thawing of the Medicare freeze has cleared the health policy landscape – dominated since 2014 by debate over co-payments and the freeze – to allow public discussion about major issues such as public hospital funding, private health insurance, primary health care, public health, aged care, mental health, and medical training

Tickets for the event can be bought online: https://www.npc.org.au/speakers/dr-michael-gannon-2/. The National Press Club is located at 16 National Circuit, Barton in the ACT. Because this is a televised event, guests are asked to arrive from 11.30am, with lunch served at 12 noon and Dr Gannon’s speech due to commence at 12.30 and conclude by 1.30pm.

For those unable to attend the event, Dr Gannon’s address will be broadcast live on ABC and ABC News 24 and also streamed live online on ABC News 24. The address will also be available on iView.
