Prime Minister Anthony Albanese is currently in Tasmania to help kick off the 14,600 kilometre run across Australia in support of the Voice To Parliament Referendum.
The vote is set to go ahead this year, with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese backing the referendum.
In addition to the 14,600 kilometre run, the Prime Minister recently announced four new urgent care, bulk billing clinics to be opened across Tasmania.
The clinics are set to open in Hobart, Launceston and Devonport.
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese explains who these clinics are for and how the government plans to staff them.
“Anyone can go to them. What they’re designed to do is to provide, if you like, a step between primary health care visiting a GP, and turning up at the emergency department of a hospital,” the Prime Minister said.
“It’s designed to take pressure off the emergency department so that if little Johnny or little Mary falls off their bike, they can go somewhere to get stitches or to get an arm fixed, if they’ve broken an arm or sprained a wrist.”
While easier access to urgent health care is exciting news for Tasmanians, Woody & Tubes wanted to hear more about Mac Point stadium and how Albanese plans to justify the funding for the stadium.
“It should be seen not as a site of a potential footy stadium, but as a site for urban redevelopment that will enhance the city of Hobart and make it even better in the future that will enhance economic activities,” the Prime Minister said.
Woody and Tubes are joined by Prime Minister Anthony Albanese to chat about the Voice To Parliament, new bulk billing medical practices across the state and Tassie’s Mac Point Stadium.
