When we get sick, Australians deserve first-class healthcare.
Under Liberal Governments, both State and Federal, we’ve seen cuts to our health system on a massive scale. The Liberals attempt to privatise Medicare by stealth has seen 160,000 fewer bulk billing consults since the last election. They’ve ripped funding from services like pathology and medical imaging, punishing those with chronic illnesses.
Even worse, between 2017 and 2020, Scott Morrison’s Government will cut more than $715 million from our public hospitals. In real terms, that means 2000 fewer nurses every year.
