Bush Nursing Hospitals
08 March 2022
I rise again today to ask the government to urgently review support to bush nursing hospitals. I have two bush nursing hospitals in my electorate—Nagambie and Euroa—but the future of these services is at risk because the Andrews government refuses to provide them with adequate support. We once had 60 bush nursing hospitals in Victoria, but they are being treated as private providers by the government, which means essential services in my communities are being placed at risk. This situation needs to be resolved or regional Victorians’ health will be placed at risk. These hospitals cannot be left to collapse.
