Medicare turns 30 on February 1 and so we’re having a birthday party to make sure the whole country can see how special Medicare is to us. So while Tony Abbott refuses to rule out a GP tax, you and I can get together and show everyone just how important free universal healthcare is to Australians.

The party is at AJ Jones Recreational Reserve, Juliette St in Greenslopes (click here for a map) at 12pm on Saturday. Let us know you're coming by RSVPing below, and feel free to bring your family along as well.
