The crisis in Queensland’s public health system has taken another sick twist with Annastacia Palaszczuk being caught out about promised upgrades to major hospitals.

LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said Labor had promised upgrades to Logan, Caboolture and Ipswich hospitals prior to the 2017 election but now they could be years away, with completion dates ‘to be determined’.

“This is a massive broken promise from Annastacia Palaszczuk,” Ms Frecklington said.

“Last week we saw an unprecedented crisis across major South East Queensland hospitals, with sick Queenslanders being warned against going to hospital.

“Now we’ve learned Labor have lied to Queenslanders about promised hospital upgrades that are years away.

“You cannot trust a word Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor say about health. This is the last thing patients and frontline health staff needed from a service suffering critical neglect under Labor.”

LNP Shadow Minister for Health Ros Bates said scandal-prone Steven Miles should tender his resignation immediately.

“Labor can waste taxpayers’ money and change the name of a hospital in record time, while patient care clearly isn’t a priority,” Ms Bates said. 

“It’s a cruel hoax and heads should roll over Labor’s hospital trickery and deceit.”
