ATMS host Wentworth Candidates Forum
The Australian Traditional-Medicine Society (ATMS) will tonight host the Wentworth Candidates Forum in Woollahra, NSW.
The seat of Wentworth has a by-election on 20 October that could change the balance of power and influence policy on future private health insurance reforms. Recently the Government has approved the removal of 17 natural therapies from the Private Health Insurance rebates, effective 01 April 2019.
The ATMS Wentworth Candidates Forum offers a chance for local practitioners, small business owners and consumers of natural medicine in the local area to support the industry and have their say.
