LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said the latest shocking Queensland Health data on Emergency Department (ED) performance shows a health system in crisis after three years of lazy mismanagement by Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor.

“The people of the Sunshine Coast deserve a world-class health system and Labor isn’t working to deliver the services they need,” Ms Frecklington said.

“The Sunshine Coast’s hard-working nurses, doctors and paramedics need urgent help to improve wait times and targeted resources to provide better health services.

“When almost a third of patients presenting to the hospital’s ED are being left to lie on stretchers and aren’t being seen in the recommended time frame, something is terribly wrong.

“And today, in classic Labor buck-passing, new Health Minister Steven Miles has the hide to issue a media release effectively blaming the problem on patient’s for falling ill - what a sick joke.

“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.”
