The future of healthcare in WA

Health policy has rarely been higher on the international agenda than in the last two years. The pandemic has seen Western Australia’s health infrastructure go through its greatest and most unexpected stress test.

What new funding and service models are needed to facilitate better care? Can the recent responses to the pandemic help catalyse change in the WA health sector?

Join Director of the UWA Public Policy Institute Professor Shamit Saggar as he speaks with Dr Omar Khorshid, President of the Federal Australian Medical Association, about the future of healthcare in WA.
