South Burnett Times - - NEWS -

PRE­MIER An­nasta­cia Palaszczuk an­nounced on Mon­day a $ 154 mil­lion fund­ing in­jec­tion de­signed to main­tain down­ward pres­sure on wait­ing times for hos­pi­tal spe­cial­ist ap­point­ments. The Pre­mier said the fund­ing would sus­tain a con­certed ef­fort to re­duce the num­ber of peo­ple wait­ing longer than clin­i­cally rec­om­mended. She said the state gov­ern­ment would de­velop an IT plat­form that al­lows pa­tients to book their spe­cial­ist ap­point­ments on­line at a time that is most con­ve­nient to them.
