Response to AMA Tasmania President

The Hodgman Government is committed to providing the best possible health care for all Tasmanians. Since 2014 we have been steadily working to improve the system with increased investments and the One Health System reforms which were widely consulted and strongly supported by all health organisations including the AMA. We don’t believe the system is as good as it should be. But the improvements that have been achieved need to be consolidated and built upon.

Tenders will be called within the next month for works to upgrade the much loved 4K children’s ward at the Launceston General Hospital following final approval of the Liberal Government funding and development plans.

I was pleased to meet with staff and parents of young patients today to view design plans which represent the first major upgrade of the paediatric ward since it was built more than 30 years ago.

The project will see ward 4K upgraded and expanded to meet the clinical needs of acutely ill children as well as provide a much better environment for recovery.
