An extra $816million will be invested in Queensland Health this year, with the Newman LNP Government promising the vast majority of extra funding will go straight to the newly created Hospital and Health Services which have been established to give greater local control and input into health services.
Along with local MP’s, Lisa France and Darren Grimwade I was thrilled to hear the announcements by the Treasurer regarding the Caboolture Hospital, after longstanding campaigns to improve these facilities for the community.
The Caboolture Hospital will receive $8.5m to continue the expansion of the emergency department and a further $2.7m for an education and skills centre, to be based at the hospital.
