Tasmanian tradition of generosity abounds at RHH

The Hodgman Liberal Government thanks the team at the Royal Hobart Hospital Volunteer Service. It’s one of the proudest and strongest workforces in Tasmania and recently celebrated it’s 50th anniversary.

Midwives and nurses recognised

Today I joined midwives and nurses to recognise the International Day of the Midwife (May 5) and International Nurses Day (May 12).

Each day these caring professionals ensure all Tasmanians receive first class midwifery and nursing care when being treated within our health system.

North West Regional Hospital helipad

The new helipad at the North West Regional Hospital is structurally complete and meets all the required standards – some minor technical issues have been identified which are now very close to being resolved.

Patients have always been able to be transported from the NWRH. Contrary to Labor leader Bec White’s media release, a patient was in fact transferred this morning by helicopter to the Royal Hobart Hospital where they are receiving the appropriate care.

More White lies

Today in question time inexperienced Labor leader Bec White again claimed that the Hodgman Liberal Government’s record $6.4 billion health spend includes the $689 million Royal Hobart Hospital Redevelopment.

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.
