Health safe in Ley’s hands

Federal Health Minister Sussan Ley is expected to keep her job in the wake of Monday night's political bloodbath.

Tony Abbott was ditched as Prime Minister by his party MPs last night and replaced by Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull (pictured) who is now tasked with appointing a new cabinet in the coming days.

Ms Ley has managed to neutralise health as a hot political issue following the turbulent tenure of her immediate predecessor Peter Dutton and his disastrous push for GP co-payments.
