It has been revealed in a new report that Federal Health Minister Tanya Plibersek is to fund the health system in Tasmania with nearly $325 million.
The assistance has been promised by Ms. Plibersek on the condition that the government of the state would no more introduce any cuts on the health care system. It has been found that the health system is in extremely poor conditions.
While the offer for the Commonwealth bailout worth multi-million dollars for next four years has been accepted by doctors, it is being said that the same cannot solve a long-term problem.
Dr. John Davis from the Australian Medical Association has affirmed, "It's going to solve some problems in the short-term and hopefully it's going to begin the process of setting the foundation in the long term".
The statement comes since it has been revealed that the money funded would be utilized for the development of new walk-in medical clinics, mental and palliative health care and elective surgery as well as for treatment of chronic diseases.
It is being said by the Heart Foundation's Graeme Lynch that research bodies would be conducting new studies with the funds so as to find way for prevention of diseases.
