39 additional permanent beds for the North

An additional 39 beds will be permanently opened in the North by the Hodgman Liberal Government.
The State Budget 2017-18 includes a record $7 billion investment in health and delivers more beds, with 19 at the Launceston General Hospital (LGH) and 20 at the John L Grove rehabilitation centre, and more permanent hospital staff for the North.

Across the North we will employ more than 85 staff, including more than 45 nurses, and a range of doctors, allied health and support workers.

Making a splash in the fight against Motor Neuron Disease. While the event was fun and brought the community together on a beautiful, warm Saturday morning in Launceston, we all understand the serious side of this. That's why the fundraising success of our community (individuals, businesses and charities working together) is so heartening to see. More than $100,000 is just amazing.
