  • Future-proofing the system - how the system will cope with climate change, technological advancement and antibiotic resistance
  • Whether the system could be fairer, more equitable and effective
  • How global healthcare is evolving
  • How funding could be altered to improve flexibility and reduce inequities
  • Infrastructure needs
  • Increasing the priority of primary care and prevention

Areas outside the draft ToR are:

  • The ACC scheme
  • Private health insurance
  • Disability system

We encourage you to respond to the Review both individually and via Colleges and Sections, Sector groups and Regions etc.
