Dietitians Australia calls on candidates in the 2023 NSW election to increase access to Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) across the health system and to improve the delivery of Home Enteral Nutrition services. We also call on the government to invest in prevention and to establish a food security and nutrition plan and council.

By improving access to dietitians and nutritious foods we can improve health across the state and reduce the burden and cost of illness.

Read about our priorities in our briefing paper.


We asked the NSW Labor Party, the Liberals and the Greens to complete an election scorecard, rating their commitment to 3 key election requests. Responses were received from Cate Faehrmann, Greens MP and Health Spokesperson, The Hon. Brad Hazzard MP, Minister for Health and Ryan Park MP, Shadow Minister for Health.
