Public health system in crisis under Labor

Today’s AMA report card on major Brisbane hospitals is another damning indictment on the state of our public health system under Annastacia Palaszczuk.

LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said Queensland’s public health system was lurching from crisis to crisis.

“While Labor focuses on wasting taxpayers’ money renaming hospitals, Queenslanders expect the government to be focused on providing better patient care,” Ms Frecklington said.

“This is yet another example that when it comes to health care, Labor’s priorities are all wrong.

“Bullying has no place in our society in any shape or form.

“Ambulance ramping is skyrocketing, our emergency departments are overcrowded and elective surgery wait times are blowing out.

“Our hard-working nurses, doctors and paramedics need more help on the frontline to improve patient care.”

LNP Shadow Health Minister Ros Bates said the damning report card was effectively a vote of no confidence by our doctors in Labor Health Minister Steven Miles.

“This is just another reason why he should be sacked,” Ms Bates said.

“Queenslanders deserve a world-class public health system that the Palaszczuk Labor Government isn’t delivering.”
