Health professionals are urging the Albanese government to waste no time in rolling out a climate-health action plan as floods and heat kill Australians.
Nurses, midwives, psychologists, the Australian Medical Association, the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) and others on Monday issued a set of urgent recommendations.
RACP president Jacqueline Small said doctors had a unique view and considerable experience of how climate health and human health fit together, and knew their communities.
"We see the impacts of climate change all the time, on our patients, and on our staff who are at the front line dealing with crises every day," Dr Small said.
