President meets Opposition Leader while PM changes

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten recently met with AMA President Dr Tony Bartone in what Dr Bartone described as a “very productive” meeting.

The pair met immediately following the change of Prime Ministership, giving them more than enough to talk about.

But Dr Bartone focussed on health policy, discussing issues surrounding general practice, mental health, aged care, and dementia.

Although talking about health with the AMA President was enough to make the Labor leader happy, a buoyant Mr Shorten had an additional reason. The meeting was held on the same day that Newspoll reported him as Australia’s preferred Prime Minister.
