Tell politicians to protect our tests

Petition

To the Honourable President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

Safeguard pathology funding by agreeing to no cuts to current funding arrangements.

I oppose any cut to pathology funding because

  • cuts could lead to reduced access to services for some Australians;
  • pathology tests are essential for diagnosis and to treat chronic diseases;
  • pathology is vital for preventative healthcare.

Any reduction of the current funding would impact those who need healthcare services the most, such as people with ongoing health conditions, young children, pregnant women and the elderly.

I ask that the Senate block any proposal to cut funding for pathology tests, to safeguard access to healthcare services for all Australians.

Pathology is a vital community service that is affordable, accessible and high quality.

Neither the government or opposition politicians have yet committed to protecting pathology funding ahead of the 2019 federal election.

We want politicians to pledge to keep current funding for all pathology tests. This will ensure access to high quality healthcare services is maintained for all Australians.



Email your political leaders to let them know that quality healthcare matters to you.

Why protect your tests?

High quality pathology services are only possible if funding is secure. Pathology funding has been squeezed for decades.
