Care in regional Qld
THE LNP supports access to maternity services in regional Queensland.
We believe that expecting mums in regional Queensland deserve the same level of health care as those in the cities.
As someone who was born in a regional hospital, I understand how important these services are to rural and regional families.
It was great to see the 1000th baby born recently at the Beaudesert Hospital, following the re-opening of maternity services by the LNP.
This comes on the back of the restoration of maternity services at the Chinchilla Hospital – after being shut down for almost a year.
We strongly believe that Queenslanders deserve a world-class health system no matter where they live.
We will continue the fight to see services return to Theodore as well.
Our hard-working nurses, midwives, doctors and paramedics in regional Queensland need more support to improve frontline health services in the bush.
Labor’s priority seems to be changing the names of hospitals, rather than improving patient care.
As a nurse, I know how important local maternity care is across regional Queensland.
We need to help expecting mums have their babies as close to home as they can.
