  •     Labor Blog  •   Breaking down the barriers to healthcare  Nicola Roxon posted Tuesday, 17 August 2010  A key barrier to good health and successful treatment of illness in regional and rural areas is the  tyranny of distance, which inhibits people’s ability to see the doctor or specialist they need.  One of the best ways to tackle this problem is to utilise the best of our modern technology to  connect people in rural and outer metro areas to health services.  Yesterday’s announcement will do exactly that, connecting people up with health services they  might otherwise not be able to access, by providing Medicare rebates for online consultations and  videoconferencing across a range of specialties.  For example, a patient with breast cancer who would usually need to travel to a regional centre or  capital city to see an oncologist to discuss a treatment plan, will be able to have a consultation with  her GP via a weblink from her local GP surgery.  We know travelling long distances is stressful and exactly what people don’t need to go through,  when they are trying to recover from very serious illness.  Likewise, people who need to have regular checkups in regional areas sometimes have to spend  significant time off work to travel to see specialists a long distance away. For instance, a patient with  diabetes and heart disease who usually needs to travel to see an endocrinologist and cardiologist  every three or six months will be able to videoconference, potentially with a nurse, at their usual GP  practice instead.  These kinds of services are already being provided in our hospitals in Tasmania and we know it can  make a real difference to peoples’ lives.  While these services will be more broadly available with the current technology from July next year,  they will be enhanced as the NBN is rolled out because the NBN will provide significantly improved  reliability and greater speed.  This is a glimpse of the kind of advances the NBN will deliver - underpinning better health, better  education and better business, it’s about so much more than just emails and Facebook as Tony  Abbott would have you believe.     Federal Labor has a plan for the future of healthcare in Australia. All Tony Abbott has proposed is to  cut funding for hospitals, GP Super Clinics, the GP after hours helpline, and e‐health records, and pull  the plug on the NBN.  He simply does not have the judgement to realise how important these services are to Australians.
