GLENYS BEAUCHAMP APPOINTMENT AS HEALTH SECRETARY
Labor congratulates Glenys Beauchamp on her appointment as Secretary of the Department of Health.
The Secretary of Health is one of the most important appointments in the public service, an integral part of leading and shaping Australia’s health and aged care systems and sporting outcomes.
The Department’s size and scope is significant – with more than 5000 employees the policies it implements will reach every Australian from birth to death.
Labor looks forward to seeing Ms Beauchamp’s contribution to the Department, and we look forward to working with Ms Beauchamp when she commences in the role.
