    Excellent points Carol. Which would you prioritise in negotiations? Any action on dental health would surely be welcomed in rural, regional and remote Australia.

    I’d certainly welcome a return to health issues which aren’t just about ‘health care’, ‘health services’ and ‘health decision-making processes’. While it’s important to get those things right (and Leslie Russell had some good things to say about those, with comparisons to the USA), it would be a shame to lose sight of the things that minimise people’s use of health services: i.e the prevention agenda. The Greens have been upfront about their belief that we need to get rid of junk food advertising to children, phase out alcohol sponsorship, and a few other things coming out of the Preventative Health Taskforce. We also have a National Male Health Policy (and a not-quite updated National Women’s Health Policy) whose implementation remains unclear.
