Area Health rep to meet Premier

THE chairwoman of North Coast Area Health Advisory Council and its chief executive will meet with the NSW Premier and Health Minister in Sydney today to discuss the Prime Minister’s health plan.

Hazel Bridgett and Chris Crawford will join representatives from all Area Health Services across the State to discuss issues Kristina Keneally raised in a letter to Mr Rudd.

The meeting comes after Greens leader Bob Brown yesterday warned Mr Rudd he had to do more than just win over State and territory leaders to his planned overhaul of the nation’s health system.

“He’s going to have to deal with the Senate,” Mr Brown said.

Mr Rudd rounded off a three-state visit yesterday by meeting Victorian Premier John Brumby in Melbourne for talks he described as ‘a good, positive, constructive conversation’.

Mr Brumby agreed the meeting was positive but said the two leaders were ‘way apart’.

On Saturday Mr Rudd met with Queensland Premier Anna Bligh in Brisbane, a day after discussions with Kristina Keneally in Sydney.
