$14 Million from Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service...that includes Gympie and surrounding regions...we don't have enough services as it is for our growing population.BREAKING: The State Government has ripped more than $400 million out of the health system in the past three years.That’s right... 400 MILLION DOLLARS. Today we can reveal hospitals and health services across Queensland have had tens of millions of dollars slashed in the middle of an unprecedented health crisis. As ambulance ramping rates soar and our waitlist for surgery balloons, the Queensland government is cutting funding. This year, Metro South has been worst hit with nearly $17 million cut, followed by the Gold Coast with almost $15 million and the Sunshine Coast with $14 million.Queensland’s health system is already at breaking point. With one hand the State Government is pointing and blaming everyone else, and with the other it’s taking a scalpel to the Queensland Health frontline. Our doctors, nurses and paramedics are scrambling to hold our hospitals together but they’re being badly let down by a State Government that is incapable of fixing the culture of Queensland Health. We’ve been putting our solutions on the table to fix the health system. Instead of more cuts it’s now time for some action. We want our doctors and nurses to be properly resourced and empowered to do what they do best – care for sick and injured Queenslanders. We’ll keep highlighting our solutions and these decisions until all Queenslanders have a health system they can depend on. ... See MoreSee Less
