Weatherill Government full of s*** on Modbury Hospital

Friday, 13 December 2013

Despite closing the paediatric ward and associated services at Modbury Hospital, the Weatherill Labor Government is wasting taxpayers’ money distributing pamphlets claiming it is ‘improving care for kids at Modbury Hospital’.

Shadow Health Minister Rob Lucas rubbished the claim, saying the pamphlet was nothing more than political spin.

“Today the Weatherill Labor Government is closing the paediatric ward and associated services at Modbury hospital, yet it is distributing pamphlets claiming it is ‘improving care for kids at Modbury Hospital’,” said Mr Lucas.

“Only Mr Weatherill and Mr Snelling could claim this is ‘improving care for kids at Modbury Hospital’.

“The reality is the Weatherill Labor Government has thumbed its nose at families in the north eastern suburbs, and cut a frontline service by closing the paediatric ward.

“More than 3750 people signed petitions to keep the paediatric ward open, yet the Weatherill Government is reducing, not improving, care for kids at Modbury Hospital.

“Minister Snelling needs to explain how cutting the paediatric ward and associated services at Modbury Hospital is ‘improving care for kids at Modbury Hospital’.

“Steven Marshall and the State Liberals have already promised if elected that we will reverse this unacceptable Weatherill Labor Government decision.

“South Australians deserve a better Government with the right priorities to put South Australia back on track.”
