Having been a single parent of two boys, I know what it’s like to do a late-night run to the hospital emergency ward. I know the stress, the lack of sleep, and I know that when you need a hospital you need it nearby.
Almost half of our local patients need to travel elsewhere to get medical attention, because Joondalup Health Campus doesn’t have the resources it needs.
Joondalup Health Campus needs $312 million for an upgraded Emergency Department, new operating theatres, more beds and a stand-alone mental health facility.
The McGowan Labor Government is pulling its weight, but Malcolm Turnbull is ignoring the needs of our northern suburbs and hasn’t committed any Federal funding to our local hospital.
Every Australian deserves a quality, local hospital. That’s why this fight is so important.
The Liberals think they can get away with ignoring the needs of our northern suburbs and our local hospital. Let’s make sure they don’t.
Sign my petition to tell Malcolm Turnbull that fair funding matters.
