John Menadue. The Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing.

I have frequently raised my concerns about the ability of the Department of Health and Ageing to develop good health policy and manage health reform. A test of the new Minister is whether she can help facilitate the necessary reform. See below links to two earlier articles I wrote on this problem. The first is a capability review of the Department of Heath and Ageing by the Australian Public Service Commission. The second is a report by the Australian National Audit Office of DHA’s administration of the Fifth Community Pharmacy Agreement.

Both reports raise very serious issues.
