Federal election 2022: Labor to spend $750 million to strengthen Medicare

Anthony Albanese is promising to give GPs grants of up to $50,000 if he wins the election as part of a package Labor says will ease pressure on hospitals and give patients more access to afterhours care.

A special taskforce would also be set up to oversee a new “strengthening Medicare fund”, with Labor promising to spend an extra $750 million on this over the next four years.

The Health Minister would chair the taskforce but would work with medical groups including the Australian Medical Association and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
