In 2022, the Parliamentary Friends of Nursing group was re-established, which is the forum for parliamentarians to directly engage with the nursing profession throughout the 47th parliament.
The following three Members of Parliament accepted the role of co-convenors for the group:
- Dr Anne Webster MP, Federal Member for Mallee
- Dr Helen Haines MP, Federal Member for Indi
- Ms Peta Murphy MP, Federal Member for Dunkley
It is intended that this group will provide a non-partisan forum for parliamentarians to meet to discuss a range of issues facing the nursing profession and how the nursing profession can provide solutions to the issues facing Australia’s health system.
