Health Matters


In the first episode of Represent, we look at the politics of health. Ws speak to former Howard government advisor Terry Barnes about his proposal for $6 GP co-payments, and we chat to federal opposition health spokesperson Catherine King about some current health policy issues. Plus, Richard Foster from the Melbourne City Council and Tom Carins from the University of Melbourne Medical Students’ Society join us in the studio to talk Medicare, needle vending machines, cannabis, drug and alcohol-related violence, smoking and UFC.
