Health Media subscriptions

The Department of Health distributes ministerial and departmental media releases to subscribers to the Health Media email service.

The department distributes Health Media emails on most non-public holiday weekdays. Each email contains all media releases published to the Department of Health ( and ministerial websites after 4.00pm Australian Eastern Standard/Australian Eastern Daylight Time the previous day and at or before 4.00pm AEST/AEDT the current day.

When no media releases have been published for a particular day, no Health Media email will be sent.

Media releases are provided to the department by ministerial media advisers, therefore the Health Media service may not be as timely as distribution methods used by ministerial offices.

Media releases with party political content can be found on the relevant minister’s website and are not distributed by the department through the Health Media email list.
