Since its opening in 1997, the Peel Health Campus has remained largely unchanged.
But over the past 20 years, our region has grown by over 55,000 residents.
Like many in our region, I'm concerned about PHC's diminishing capacity to cater for a growing and ageing population.
The staff at PHC are fantastic (they tended to my own father over Christmas), but the facilities need to be upgraded.
Recently the federal government invested an extra $190 million into the WA Hospitals. But health funding is distributed according to the State Government's priorities. The McGowan government didn't consider the Peel region a priority.
Alongside Zak Kirkup MLA, I'm calling on the McGowan Government to stop ignoring us, and to invest in Mandurah. We need:
- An expanded ED
- A long-term plan for health services
- A dedicated ED waiting room for children
- An expanded carpark
Sign if you agree that the Peel region needs a better hospital!
