Do you have faith in Tas­ma­nia’s health sys­tem?

I don’t have to­tal faith in the health sys­tem. I think a lot of peo­ple fall through the cracks and I think there are things the gov­ern­ment spend money on that could be bet­ter spent on the health sys­tem.

Mary-Anne Rid­dick Kingston, 50

I’m a mixed an­swer. Yes in that I think the staff do the very best they pos­si­bly can, and I’ve only re­ceived pos­i­tive care for my­self and my fam­ily. But there can be ex­tended wait­ing pe­ri­ods.

David Cawthorn Kingston, 52

Yes and no. There are al­ways go­ing to be short­falls and it doesn’t mat­ter who is in gov­ern­ment, it is al­ways go­ing to be dif­fi­cult with our age­ing pop­u­la­tion.

Fiona Gil­lon Kingston, 55

I do. I had an in­ci­dent a few weeks back and had to go to the Royal. I was seen quickly, the staff couldn’t have been more help­ful. But the staff are un­der a lot of pres­sure and more money needs to go into the pub­lic health sys­tem to cut down on wait­ing lists for op­er­a­tions.
