The Consumers Health Forum of Australia (CHF) is the national peak body representing the interests of Australian healthcare consumers. CHF works to achieve safe, quality, timely healthcare for all Australians, supported by accessible health information and systems. CHF welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission to the Federal Treasurer to inform the 2015-16 Federal Budget. In the last year there has been much discussion around the Government’s desire to reduce expenditure and health has been a target of these discussions, with many statements about the unsustainability of Medicare and a looming blowout in health expenditure.
