Lobby groups from the rural health sector are now watching closely the meeting happening today at the Council of Australian Governments which focuses on health reforms.
The Rural Doctors Association is advocating the Premiers not to approve the Federal Government's health care plan until a solution to attract and keep doctors in remote and rural Australia comes up.
Gordon Gregory from the National Rural Health Alliances said that the large number of suggested health reforms next for discussion have lots of questions for people located in country areas.
There's a huge number of questions awaiting them and I think the best think we can do tonight is to say, 'okay, the Commonwealth and the states agreed to do this, that and the other on how will it impact us in rural and remote areas', he says.
There's going to be a number of issues that we have to unpick, unpack and ask ourselves, how will this impact people in the bush?
