The Labor Party says it will spend $750 million on general practice if it wins the federal election, with the focus on reviving voluntary patient enrolment.

Speaking at the Pandanus Medical Centre in Darwin, Labor leader Anthony Albanese said the cash would be used over three years to fund “key priorities” of the Primary Health Care 10 Year Plan.
