MS RYAN (Euroa) — My question is to the Minister for Health. Given that almost 40 per cent of the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre's patients are private, can the minister confirm that the proposed new 42 beds on the private floor of the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre would actually mean more beds available for public patients by treating private patients currently in public beds?
MS RYAN (Euroa) — Given Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre the new 42-bed private cancer facility at the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre was at no cost to the Victorian taxpayer, why is the minister putting ideology ahead of the health of sick Victorians?
