Circumstances have continued to evolve as the COVID-19 Omicron variant has added further pressure to Australia’s healthcare sector, as well as increasing supply chain disruptions, bringing about staff shortages and reducing household spending. With a Federal election due on May 21, 2022 to elect members of the 47th Parliament of Australia, Josh Frydenberg, Treasurer of the Commonwealth of Australia presented the Federal Budget on March 29. The Coalition Government led by Scott Morrison is investing in a stronger health system as part of its plan for a stronger future through a record $132 billion in 2022–23 Budget, increasing to $140 billion in 2025–26, with a total commitment of $537 billion over the next four years. This record funding will ensure Australians have access to improved healthcare, when and where they need it, helping them to lead healthier lives, with improved health outcomes and to provide ongoing protection against COVID-19.
