Minister for Health David Tollner today announced Ms. Jennifer Prince will take up a special projects advisory role.
Mr. Tollner said Ms. Prince will provide strategic advice on how to improve the delivery of health and hospital services in the Northern Territory.
“Ms. Prince has held several senior positions, including Chief Executive of Northern Territory Treasury, and has extensive policy, budget and fiscal management experience.” Mr. Tollner said.
“I want health to return as a top priority for government and will ensure the Territory is receiving its fair share of Commonwealth funding now and into the future.”
“As the former Under Treasurer, Ms. Prince is highly experienced in Commonwealth funding issues and I am confident she has the skills and expertise to maximise revenue from the Commonwealth to improve health services in the Territory.”
“Ms. Prince will review current Commonwealth funding arrangements to determine whether they are delivering the best possible deal for Territorians and the Territory’s health and hospital system.” Mr. Tollner said.
