Scott Morrison and the LNP are cutting $715 million from Australia’s public hospitals from 2017 – 2020. That’s the equivalent of more than 2000 nurses every year.
When you or your loved ones are sick, the last thing you need is to worry about whether your local hospital has enough beds to give you the health care you need.
Every day, more that 21,000 Australians will visit an emergency department – with our hard-working doctors and nurses overstretched and under resourced to keep up with demand.
It’s time Morrison got the message. His hospital cuts are hurting local communities right now – but his only answer is even more cuts.
