ACT Health Minister stands down

ACT Health Minister Meegan Fitzharris has announced she will be standing down on July 1.

Ms Fitzharris said in a statement that the decision was a personal one, stemming from a desire to better balance her family life.

She said she will leave the Legislative Assembly in the coming weeks to allow a new member to be appointed to contest the 2020 election.

Ms Fitzharris has been health minister since 2016 and also held the transport and higher education portfolios.

ACT Health recently launched a digital health strategy and secured $70 million over four years in the June budget to support it.

The strategy includes existing investments in patient flow technology, a new pathology system and plans for a digital medical record.
