Amanda is incredibly concerned about the Federal Liberal Government’s cuts to hospitals across Australia, and particularly in Southern Adelaide.
The Abbott-Turnbull-Morrison Government has cut funding to every single public hospital in Australia from 2017 – 2022. This includes $7.6 million from hospitals in the South including Flinders and Noarlunga Hospital.
As a result of these cuts ED wait times are longer than ever, our hospital staff are increasingly under resourced, and surgeries are being delayed.
This is yet another way the Liberals are attacking our world-class health care system.
Their refusal to immediately unfreeze the Medicare rebate is seeing out-of-pocket costs to see GPs and specialists continue to soar.
Private health insurance premiums are out of control and nothing is being done by this Government it stop it.
Whether it be hospitals, Medicare, or private health - our health care system is being squeezed from every angle and it is everyday Australians who are paying the price.
Our local community is rightly concerned about these cuts to Flinders and Noarlunga Hospitals, and Amanda will continue to fight against them.
