Following is a statement by Sussan Ley, Minister for Health & Minister for Sport, after revised ministerial arrangements were announced today – Sun 20 Sep. A full list of the new Turnbull Ministry is available here.
“I’m excited to retain the Health and Sport portfolios. It’s been a busy 9 months of reform with much still to do to keep Aussies fit, happy and healthy. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with both the health and sport sectors and, most importantly patients and consumers, to improve outcomes and opportunities for all Australians in a considered, caring and consultative way. I would like to thank Fiona Nash for everything she is doing in the portfolio and look forward to continuing to work closely with her and would also like to welcome Ken Wyatt on board as he joins our health and sport team.”
