National Seniors polling consistently shows that health is a top priority for older Australians. 

For some people, that much-needed visit to the GP or specialist is out of reach because they can no more afford the gap payment for the service, than they can the cost of the medication and/or treatment.

Improvements to the health system feature prominently on National Seniors lobbying agenda either through federal and state/territory budget submissions or direct talk with relevant ministers.

We’re calling for shorter waiting lists and better and more affordable health care all round.
