The Rudd government’s health care reforms have begun and the MJA has joined the community-wide debate with contributions from a raft of health care experts including Penington (→ Prime Minister Rudd’s plan for reforming Australian public hospitals), Deeble (→ Reforming Australian health care: the first instalment), Bennett (→ Taking the first step toward a healthier future), Hickie (→ The 2010 Rudd plan: will it actually deliver better health services?), Richardson (→ The Rudd reforms: a poisoned chalice in the long run), Eagar (→ The Rudd hospital plan — many pitfalls to avoid on the way to a better health system) and Boxall (→ Reforming Australia’s health system, again). Van Der Weyden (→ The Rudd government’s health reform 2010) says that, overall, the verdict was that the announced plans lack comprehensive details but that it is time to seek the opinions of the profession at large — we await the verdicts of our readers.
