THE HON ANDREW HASTIE MP - FEDERAL MEMBER FOR CANNING
LABOR DELAYS UPGRADES TO PEEL HEALTH CAMPUS
Federal Member for Canning, the Hon Andrew Hastie MP has called on Premier Mark McGowan to reverse his decision to delay vital upgrades to the Peel Health Campus until 2024.
It comes as ambulance ramping figures reach yet another new high of 601.8 hours for the month of November – more than 20 hours a day.
Mr Hastie said the Premier is putting the lives of people in the Peel region at risk.
“Mark McGowan should hang his head in shame having let our hospital system reach the state it’s in, and now delaying upgrades to Peel Health Campus that he promised before the 2021 state election,” Mr Hastie said.
“The Premier has proved time and time again, that he will always put residents of the Peel region last.
“Ambulances are ramped for 20 hours a day, nurses are underpaid and overworked, and the only action the Premier takes is to kick upgrades to our hospital into the long grass.
“The people of the Peel region trusted Mark McGowan to fix our hospital like he promised. They elected three state Labor members, but where are they now?
“David Templeman has been our local MP for 20-years, why is he not standing up for our community? He is completely ineffective as a long-standing cabinet minister. Where is Robyn Clarke? And where is Lisa Munday - an ex-paramedic who promised to fight for our community yet has stayed silent on this issue?
“The people of the Peel region deserve better, and I call on WA Labor to reverse this appalling decision immediately.”
Nearly 700 people have signed Mr Hastie’s petition calling for urgent action at the Peel Health Campus which can be found here.
