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.

Labor votes against protecting emergency service workers

Labor has once again chosen self-interest above the safety of Tasmanians when they shamefully voted against mandatory minimum sentences for serious assaults on emergency service workers.

Frontline workers have the right to work without being seriously assaulted, which is exactly why we introduced this legislation that sends the right message that this will no longer be tolerated.

More money, more paramedics

Our record Health Budget provides more than $7 billion for health services, and includes new funding for Ambulance Tasmania. Unlike Labor, who looked to bring in an ambulance levy and make Tasmanians foot the bill for vital services, we have put the Budget on a sustainable footing so we can invest more in our ambulance service.

Continuing our work to give Tasmanians the health system they deserve. I'm absolutely determined to keep up the work needed to take our hospitals to the next level, on the foundation of the vital improvements we've already made.

I will place my statement as a comment below.

Enjoy your weekend, we will never stop working for you.

I can honestly commend from our end the Hospital, particularly the Holman clinic for the support & quick action when it comes to my husband Robert Keogh ever since he was diagnosed with stage 4 terminal Bowel cancer we've had everything done for us to make our journey easier even down to when his mother passed away 2 weeks into his treatment of cancer as well !! Thanku

I agree Shelley, there is too much negativity in the media regarding our hospitals and the supposed "health crisis". This government and this minister are doing an outstanding job, always admitting there is more to do, but pressing on and funding and initiating positive changes. They are to be commended for the turnaround that has been achieved, even more so considering the debacle left by the labor/green govt. Keep up the good fight Will Hodgman Michael Ferguson and the team behind that support you.

Shelley I am so sorry to hear that Robert has been so ill and it was a shock to find out that Elva has passed away. Jenny and I send our condolences and best wishes to your family. I hope Mike is okay please send him our thoughts and that we are thinking of him.
