Sent June 2022 - Following the Federal Election and change in government, Dietitians Australia wrote to the new Minister for Health and Aged Care, the Hon Mark Butler MP, to congratulate him on his appointment. 

Letter excerpt

As the professional body for dietitians and the leading voice in nutrition and dietetics, we would like to work collaboratively and closely with you as Minister for Health and Aged Care. It was disappointing that the former LNP Government Health Minister never once met with us in person. We would like to reset this relationship with the new Albanese Labor Government.

We have written to Federal Treasurer Hon Jim Chalmers MP and Finance Minister Hon the Senator Katy Gallagher and provided them with opportunities to make budget savings, as outlined in this letter. We have also written to Aged Care Minister Hon Anika Wells MP, Assistant Minister for Health and Aged Care Ged Kearney MP and Assistant Minister for Mental Health Assistant Minister for Rural and Regional Health Emma McBride MP.

By investing in preventative health measures, we can improve the health, wellbeing and quality of life of Australians whilst, providing greater return on investment in the national budget.
