The Hon Sussan Ley MP – Federal Minister for Health and Aged Care

Sussan Ley has been the Federal Minister for Health since December 2014. In that time, Minister Ley has met and engaged with the RACGP regularly.

Living in and representing regional Australia, the Minister is a strong advocate for regional and rural issues, especially those which assist in bridging the city-country divide.

Before entering Parliament, Minister Ley worked a variety of jobs which provided a range of ‘real life’ experiences. At age 19, she enrolled in flight school and gained her commercial pilot’s licence, which she still holds. This led to roles as an air traffic controller and commercial pilot – she has also been a shearer’s cook, wool and beef farmer.
