THE Na­tional Ru­ral Health Al­liance (NRHA) has wel­comed the ap­point­ment of Dr An­neMarie Box­all as the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s Chief Al­lied Health Of­fi­cer (CAHO).

NRHA CEO Dr Gabrielle O’Kane de­scribed the an­nounce­ment as good news for ru­ral Aus­tralia, not­ing Box­all’s ex­pe­ri­ence.

“Dr Box­all is well-re­garded across the sec­tor and has an ex­cel­lent un­der­stand­ing of ru­ral, re­gional and re­mote health, in­clud­ing hav­ing worked as a se­nior pol­icy ad­vi­sor at the NRHA,” O’Kane said.

“Al­lied health is a cru­cial part of the health care sys­tem and par­tic­u­larly in ru­ral, re­gional and re­mote Aus­tralia.

“Al­lied health pro­fes­sion­als rep­re­sent more than a quar­ter of the health work­force.”
