"The latest shocking Queensland Health data on Emergency Department performance shows a health system in crisis after three years of lazy mismanagement by Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor.

"Queenslanders deserve a world-class health system and Labor isn't working to deliver the services we need.

"Our nurses, doctors and paramedics need more assistance to improve wait times and targeted resources to provide better health services for Queenslanders.

"Unfortunately it's back to the bad old days and our public hospital system is failing Queenslanders.

"We have a health crisis on our hands and it's time for lazy Labor to get on with the job and start working."
